Introduction to Medical Imaging. Fundamentals of Radiation for Imaging. Radiography. Mammography. Fluoroscopy Including Angiographic Systems. Computed Tomography. Ultrasound Imaging. Radionuclide Imaging. Magnetic Resonance Imaging.
Grasping the principles of medical physics and the effects of differing acquisition parameters or displays can be challenging. This book provides radiology trainees with an image-based translation of the effects of different acquisition parameters. This ensures that imaging procedures, image visualization, and manipulation are optimized in terms of dose and safety, ensuring optimal diagnostic image quality which translates into better outcomes. In short, this book closes the gap between the theory of medical imaging and imaging techniques in clinical practice.
