Introduction to the Mathematics of Medical Imaging, Second Edition

Buy
At the heart of every medical imaging technology is a sophisticated mathematical model of the measurement process and an algorithm to reconstruct an image from the measured data. This book provides a firm foundation in the mathematical tools used to model the measurements and derive the reconstruction algorithms used in most imaging modalities in current use. In the process, it also covers many important analytic concepts and techniques used in Fourier analysis, integral equations, sampling theory, and noise analysis.

This text uses X-ray computed tomography as a "pedagogical machine" to illustrate important ideas and incorporates extensive discussions of background material making the more advanced mathematical topics accessible to readers with a less formal mathematical education. The mathematical concepts are illuminated with over 200 illustrations and numerous exercises.

New to the second edition are a chapter on magnetic resonance imaging (MRI), a revised section on the relationship between the continuum and discrete Fourier transforms, a new section on Grangreat s formula, an improved description of the gridding method, and a new section on noise analysis in MRI.

Audience The book is appropriate for one- or two-semester courses at the advanced undergraduate or beginning graduate level on the mathematical foundations of modern medical imaging technologies. The text assumes an understanding of calculus, linear algebra, and basic mathematical analysis.

This book provides a firm foundation in the mathematical tools used to model the measurements at the heart of medical imaging technology, and now includes a new chapter on magnetic resonance imaging (MRI). Extensive background material, over 200 illustrations and numerous exercises make these advanced mathematical topics more accessible.

Supplementary Cementing Materials in Concrete

Supplementary cementing materials (SCMs), such as fly ash, slag, silica fume, and natural pozzolans, make a significant difference to the properties of concrete but are rarely understood in any detail. SCMs can influence the mechanical properties of concrete and improve its durability in aggressive environments. Supplementary Cementing...

Eloquent Ruby (Addison-Wesley Professional Ruby Series)

Do you know why experienced Ruby programmers tend to reach for basic collections and hashes while programmers from other languages go for more specialized classes? Do you know the difference between strip, chop, and chomp, and why there are three such similar methods when apparently one might suffice? (Not to mention lstrip and...
