Medical Imaging Technology reveals the physical and materials principles of medical imaging and image processing, from how images are obtained to how they are used. It covers all aspects of image formation in modern imaging modalities and addresses the techniques, instrumentation, and advanced materials used in this rapidly changing field.

Covering conventional and modern medical imaging techniques, this book encompasses radiography, fluoroscopy, computed tomography, magnetic resonance imaging, ultrasound, and Raman spectroscopy in medicine. In addition to the physical principles of imaging techniques, the book also familiarizes you with the equipment and procedures used in diagnostic imaging.
