Medical Imaging Physics 4th Edition Pdf written by William R. Hendee, E. Russell Ritenour. Writing and rewriting a text such as Medical Imaging Physics over several editions presents two challenges. The first is to keep the information fresh and relevant. This is a particular challenge in medical imaging, because the field is evolving so rapidly. The third edition of this text was published in 1992, just 10 short years ago. Yet in that text no mention was made of topics such as photodiode or direct conversion digital x-ray imagers; digital mammography; digital fluoroscopy; power Doppler ultrasound; functional magnetic resonance imaging; elastography; or helical CT scanning. This is just a partial list of imaging approaches that must be covered today in any text of imaging physics. Being involved in a dynamic and rapidly changing field is one of the more enjoyable aspects of medical imaging. But it places heavy demands on authors trying to provide a text that keeps up with the field.
In recognition of these challenges, the authors decided two years ago to restructure Medical Imaging Physics into a fourth edition with a fresh approach and an entirely new format. This decision led to a total rewriting of the text. We hope that this new edition will make studying imaging physics more efficient, effective, and pleasurable. It certainly has made writing it more fun.Medical imaging today is a collaborative effort involving physicians, physicists, engineers, and technologists. Together they are able to provide a level of patient care that would be unachievable by any single group working alone. But to work together,they must all have a solid foundation in the physics of medical imaging. It is the intent of this text to provide this foundation. We hope that we have done so in a manner that makes learning enriching and enjoyable,
