This one-editor, 28-author, 12-chapter book provides a very good start-up guide for students, researchers, and clinicians looking for quick guidance on the technical fundamentals, molecular background, evaluation procedures, and clinical applications of well-established medical imaging modalities as well as newly emerging technologies using light or sound.
Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) is the most versatile and fastest-growing modality in diagnostic imaging, and is considered to be one of the most important medical advances of the 20th century. MRI Essentials for Innovative Technologies describes novel methods to improve MRI beyond its current limitations and combines rigorous development of mathematical concepts with descriptive presentations of the emerging MRI techniques.
It is difficult to find a book that covers both biomedical image processing and biomedical signal processing that also has good coverage of the physics of biomedical signal acquisition techniques and biomedical imaging. This book, which contains much information in the field of signal and image processing techniques (the first edition appeared in 2005), has perfectly achieved this goal.
