Since its inception under the founding series editor, William R. Hendee, this series has reflected the cutting edge of science and technology developments in medical imaging and radiation therapy. The series encompasses all aspects of therapy and imaging in the diagnosis and treatment of human disease, presenting essential physics, biology, and medicine together with detailed, critical discussion of the state of the art and expert perspectives on future directions. Individual titles cover the wide spectrum of therapeutic aspects and imaging modalities, from magnetic resonance imaging to ultrasound, computed tomography, optical imaging, and radiography. The target audience is advanced students, researchers, residents, scientists, and professionals in a range of fields, including medical physics, biomedical engineering, radiology, oncology, and allied disciplines.
New books in the series are commissioned by invitation. Authors are also welcome to contact the Series Editors (Dr. Bruce R. Thomadsen: [email protected]; Dr. David W. Jordan: [email protected]) or the publisher (Carolina Antunes, Physics Editor: [email protected]) to discuss new title ideas.
