Comprised of chapters carefully selected from CRC’s best-selling engineering handbooks, volumes in the Principles and Applications in Engineering series provide convenient, economical references sharply focused on particular engineering topics and subspecialties. Culled from the Biomedical Engineering Handbook, Biomedical Imaging provides an overview of the main medical imaging devices and highlights emerging systems. With applications ranging from imaging the whole body to replicating cellular components, the imaging modalities discussed include x-ray systems, computed tomographic systems, magnetic resonance imaging, nuclear medicine, ultrasound, MR microscopy, virtual reality, and more.
