R. Nick Bryan, University of Pennsylvania This innovative books presents scientific imaging principles, introduces the major biomedical imaging modalities, reviews the basics of human and computer image analysis and provides examples of major clinical and research applications. This is a landmark text on image acquisition and interpretation. Revolutionary advances in imaging technology that provide high resolution, 3-D, non-invasive imaging of biological subjects have made biomedical imaging an essential tool in clinical medicine and biomedical research. Key technological advances include MRI, positron emission tomography (PET) and multidetector X-ray CT scanners. Common to all contemporary imaging modalities is the creation of digital data and pictures. The evolution from analog to digital image data is driving the rapidly expanding field of digital image analysis. 99 An excellent teaching tool, using clinical and research images 99 Presents verbal, pictorial and quantitative formats enabling readers to understand the increasingly critical link between images and

Topics covered include an introduction to MRS physics, information content of spectra from different organ systems, spectral analysis methods, recommended protocols and localization techniques, and normal age and region related spectral variations in the brain. Clinical applications in the brain are discussed for brain tumors, hypoxic and ischemic injury, infectious, inflammatory and demyelinating diseases, epilepsy, neurodegenerative disorders, trauma and metabolic diseases. Outside of the brain, techniques and applications are discussed for MRS in the musculosketal system, breast and prostate. 99 An invaluable guide to in vivo MRS, including radiologists, neurologists, neurosurgeons, oncologists and medical researchers 99 Select the right technique for each disease by following recommended protocols and techniques 99 Get a quick overview of the main uses of MRS from handy summaries of key findings

An invaluable aid for engineers, clinicians, mathematicians and physicists in understanding the physical principles of imaging and their clinical applications.

Acta Neurochirugica on the 1st ed

In vivo magnetic resonance spectrosopy (MRS) is increasingly being used in the clinical setting, particularly for neurological disorders. This in-depth text explains both the underlying physical principles of MRS and provides a perceptive review of clinical MRS applications.


This second edition, is an invaluable technical introduction to each imaging modality, explaining the mathematical and physical principles. It gives a clear understanding of how images are obtained and interpreted. Individual chapters cover each imaging modality; radiography, CT, MRI, nuclear medicine and ultrasound. It reviews the physics of the signal and its interaction with tissue, the image formation or reconstruction process, a discussion of image quality and equipment, clinical applications and biological effects and safety issues. It looks at image analysis and visualization for diagnosis, treatment and surgery.

COMING SOON Introduction to the Science of Medical Imaging

Paul Suetens, University Hospital Leuven, Belgium

Congratulations … a book that bridges a gap in the market, addressing both the technical aspects of diffusion, perfusion and spectroscopy and their clinical applications … This detailed text offers chapters from a wide range of eminent authors from both sides of the Atlantic … I can highly recommend this book … Without doubt this book should be in the library of neuroimaging centres.
