    The book has two intentions. First, it assembles the latest research in the field of medical imaging technology in one place. Detailed descriptions of current state-of-the-art medical imaging systems (comprised of x-ray CT, MRI, ultrasound, and nuclear medicine) and data processing techniques are discussed. Information is provided that will give interested engineers and scientists a solid foundation from which to build with additional resources. Secondly, it exposes the reader to myriad applications that medical imaging technology has enabled.

    "Diagrams are clearly drawn, and illustrations that use colour are reproduced both in monochrome within the chapter and in colour in an insert in the middle of the book. … would be a fine resource for graduate-level teachers wanting to introduce some up-to-the-minute examples into their lectures, and for researchers and innovators needing to bring themselves quickly up to speed. Beyond these groups, however, there is something included for anyone with an interest in medical imaging … ."
