Editorial Reviews

From The Critics
This is a book well worth the money and I can strongly recommend it both as desk and bedside reading.
Image Processing Magazine
Developments in digital radiography, together with an analysis of the computing requirements of the various techniques, complete this excellent text. The authors have done a remarkable job in covering such a wide subject so well in such a short book.
Physics Today
Steve Webb has produced a first-class book. Because Physics of Medical Imaging is up-to-date in a rapidly changing field, it is the text of choice for teaching graduate research students in this new and exciting subspeciality of physics.
RAD Magazine
..a valuable text for all concerned with the science of imaging whether in industry or in the health service. All chapters are not only fact-stating but also thought-provoking ... very readable text ...
