Over recent years there has been a vast expansion in the variety of imaging techniques available, and developments in machine specifications continue apace. If radiologists and radiographers are to obtain optimal image quality while minimising exposure times, a good understanding of the fundamentals of the radiological science underpinning diagnostic imaging is essential. The second edition of this well-received textbook continues to cover all technical aspects of diagnostic radiology, and remains an ideal companion during examination preparation and beyond. The content includes a review of basic science aspects of imaging, followed by a detailed explanation of radiological sciences, conventional x-ray image formation and other imaging techniques. The enormous technical advances in computed tomography, including multislice acquisition and 3D image reconstruction, digital imaging in the form of image plate and direct radiography, magnetic resonance imaging, colour flow imaging in ultrasound and positron radiopharmaceuticals in nuclear medicine, are all considered here. A chapter devoted to computers in radiology considers advances in radiology information systems and computer applications in image storage and communication systems. The text concludes with a series of general topics relating to diagnostic imaging. The content has been revised and updated throughout to ensure it remains in line with the Fellowship of the Royal College of Radiologists (FRCR) examination, while European and American perspectives on technology, guidelines and regulations ensure international relevance.

It happens all too often: The vague images of a poor quality video from a surveillance camera splash across the screen in a darkened courtroom and the guilt or innocence of the defendant hinges on whether or not the jury can determine if he or she is really the person in those images. Interpretation and misinterpretation of information about imaging in general, and digital image manipulation in computers in particular, by expert witnesses on both sides, and by counsel who ask questions that are both confused and confusing, may or may not help the jury in reaching a decision. Clearly there is a need for a simple guide to digital imaging for law and forensic professionals. Forensic Uses of Digital Imaging addresses that need. Written by the author of the best selling Image Processing Handbook, it shows you step-by-step how to use digital imaging to its best advantage. It explains by example when and why some procedures are appropriate and what they can be expected to reveal. While other books discuss computer programming to implement algorithms, this book shows in more simple terms just what the advantages and shortcomings of digital imaging are, and how computer image processing can be used to enhance the ability to access detail without compromising the truth of images. Practitioners will learn how to testify about their procedures and results in simple, precise language. Counsel will discover appropriate avenues for questioning to bring forth such explanations, and how to challenge witnesses who may confuse or mislead juries with wrong information or opinions.

This renowned work is derived from the authors' acclaimed national review course ("Physics of Medical Imaging") at the University of California-Davis for radiology residents. The text is a guide to the fundamental principles of medical imaging physics, radiation protection and radiation biology, with complex topics presented in the clear and concise manner and style for which these authors are known. Coverage includes the production, characteristics and interactions of ionizing radiation used in medical imaging and the imaging modalities in which they are used, including radiography, mammography, fluoroscopy, computed tomography and nuclear medicine. Special attention is paid to optimizing patient dose in each of these modalities. Sections of the book address topics common to all forms of diagnostic imaging, including image quality and medical informatics as well as the non-ionizing medical imaging modalities of MRI and ultrasound. The basic science important to nuclear imaging, including the nature and production of radioactivity, internal dosimetry and radiation detection and measurement, are presented clearly and concisely. Current concepts in the fields of radiation biology and radiation protection relevant to medical imaging, and a number of helpful appendices complete this comprehensive textbook. The text is enhanced by numerous full color charts, tables, images and superb illustrations that reinforce central concepts. The book is ideal for medical imaging professionals, and teachers and students in medical physics and biomedical engineering. Radiology residents will find this text especially useful in bolstering their understanding of imaging physics and related topics prior to board exams.
