about

This completely updated second edition of Radiation Exposure and Image Quality in X-ray Diagnostic Radiology provides the reader with detailed guidance on the optimization of radiological imaging. The basic physical principles of diagnostic radiology are first presented in detail, and their application to clinical problems is then carefully explored. The final section is a supplement containing tables of data and graphical depictions of X-ray spectra, interaction coefficients, characteristics of X-ray beams, and other aspects relevant to patient dose calculations. In addition, a complementary CD-ROM contains a user-friendly Excel file database covering these aspects that can be used in the reader's own programs. This book will be an invaluable aid to medical physicists when performing calculations relating to patient dose and image quality, and will also prove useful for diagnostic radiologists and engineers.

Editorial Reviews

From the reviews:"This textbook deals with the central concern of professionals working in diagnostic imaging. . it treats the material in greater depth than is usual in standard radiological physics textbooks. . The strength of the work resides in its structured treatment of topics that are pivotal in diagnostic imaging and also CT. . I would recommend it as an invaluable reference work for scientists working in diagnostic imaging. It should be of particular value to those involved in the training of staff in the field." (Dr M Casey, RAD Magazine, May, 2004)"The book derives from a wide range of knowledge, scientific data, and extensive practical experience accumulated over the years. . This book, which is a clear and comprehensive scientific overview, provides a reference for physicists, engineers, and other experts working on problems of image quality, patient dose estimation, and the establishment of diagnostic reference levels. Its launch at this time is well chosen, as European experts are much concerned with the demands of CEC 97/43 publication (MED)." (O. Glomset, Acta Radiologica, 2004)
