The CT Handbook:
Optimizing Protocols for Today's Feature Rich-Scanners

Author: Timothy P. Szczykutowicz

Price $165.00

ISBN: Hardcover 978-0-944838-53-2
eBook 978-0-944838-57-0



Sample Chapter 1 w/Table of Contents [pdf format]

The target audiences for this book are practicing radiologists, medical physicists, and technologists. The topics covered reflect the day-to-day needs of supporting a CT scanner from the perspective of a CT protocol optimization team.

A realization of Medical Physics 3.0 must involve an appreciation of the administrative, clinical, and technical sides of CT imaging. Since the author treats all of these facets in the book, it embodies the mission of Medical Physics 3.0 for CT.

The text doesn't shy away from comparing features from different vendors. Providing vendor-specific information allows one to gain real-world insight into MDCT scanner reconstruction and AEC operation.

Prepublication Special Includes a FREE Periodic Table with K-energies.

An Introduction to MRI for Medical Physicists and Engineers

Authors: Anthony Wolbarst and Nathan Yanasak

Price: $120.00

Hardcover ISBN: 978-1-930524-20-0
eBook ISBN: 978-1-930524-58-3


Table of Contents

MRI reveals structural and anatomic details of soft tissues often much better than does CT. It can also exploit novel and unique contrast mechanisms at the biomolecular level to provide information on the physiologic and pathologic status of organs, muscles, nerve trunks, cartilage, etc.

This introduction to the science and technology of MRI has been written at the beginning graduate level primarily for professional medical physicists and engineers in training. Others, such as physicians with physical science backgrounds, may well also find it to be of interest.

Several more advanced topics-like Fourier analysis, k-space, and statistical distributions-are introduced as they are needed.

Richly illustrated in color, this book will help readers understand not just the basics of MRI, but how recent variations on its original implementation have produced the many alternative interpretations of data that have made MRI such a powerful diagnostic tool.
