PRLog (Press Release) - Jun. 5, 2012 - Since the publication of the best-selling, highly acclaimed first edition, the technology and clinical applications of medical imaging have changed significantly. Gathering these developments into one volume, Webb’s Physics of Medical Imaging, Second Edition presents the basic physics, modern technology and up-to-date examples of clinical application across all the modalities of medical imaging.

New to the Second Edition

   Coverage of state-of-the-art detector technology and computer processing used in medical imaging
   Chapters on medical image processing and multimodality imaging
   More than 50 percent new examples and over 80 percent new figures

Keeping the material accessible to graduate students, this well-illustrated book reviews the basic physics underpinning imaging in medicine. It covers the major techniques of x-radiology, computerised tomography, nuclear medicine, ultrasound and magnetic resonance imaging, in addition to infrared, electrical impedance and optical imaging. The text also describes the mathematics of medical imaging, image processing, image perception, computational requirements and multimodality imaging.

Praise for the First Edition

Steve Webb has produced a first-class book. Because The Physics of Medical Imaging is up to date in a rapidly changing field, it is the text of choice for teaching graduate research students in this new and exciting subspeciality of physics.
—Physics Today

… a worthwhile addition to the personal library of anyone connected with this field.
—Journal of Clinical Physics and Physiological Measurement

For all those requiring a comprehensive review of medical imaging techniques, at a fairly basic level, this text is highly recommended.
—Australian Physicist

This is a book well worth the money and I can strongly recommend it both as desk and bedside reading.
—HPA Bulletin

Developments in digital radiography, together with an analysis of the computing requirements of the various techniques, complete this excellent text. The authors have done a remarkable job in covering such a wide subject so well in such a short book.
—Image Processing Magazine

This is an excellent publication and represents much dedication and hard work on behalf of the authors and, in particular, the editor.
—RAD Magazine
