Book Description

This one-of-a-kind resource provides a very readable description of the methods used for image reconstruction in magnetic resonance imaging, X-ray computed tomography, and single photon emission computed tomography. The goal of this fascinating work is to provide radiologists with a practical introduction to mathematical methods so that they may better understand the potentials and limitations of the images used to make diagnoses. Presented in four parts, this state-of-the-art text covers (1) an introduction to the models used in reconstruction, (2) an explanation of the Fourier transform, (3) a brief description of filtering, and (4) the application of these methods to reconstruction. In order to provide a better understanding of the reconstruction process, this comprehensive volume draws analogies between several different reconstruction methods. This informative reference is an absolute must for all radiology residents, as well as graduate students and professionals in the fields of physics, nuclear medicine, and computer-assisted tomography.
