The physical properties that underlie current and emerging medical imaging devices are clarified by the 23 articles in this book. The accuracy, pitfalls, bioeffects, and diagnostic efficacy of any technology depend on the physical properties, and fruitless clinical trials could be avoided by better understanding of the physical limits of each technique. There are chapters on the properties of classic techniques such as film radiography and nuclear medicine, as well as up-to-date sections on ultrasound, digital radiography, computed tomography, electron radiography, emission tomography, and nuclear magnetic resonance. Although the material is aimed at the practicing medical imager, much of the
