Overview

Semiconductor Radiation Detection Systems addresses the state-of-the-art in the design of semiconductor detectors and integrated circuit design, in the context of medical imaging using ionizing radiation. It addresses exciting new opportunities in X-ray detection, Computer Tomography (CT), bone dosimetry, and nuclear medicine (PET, SPECT). In addition to medical imaging, the book explores other applications of semiconductor radiation detection systems in security applications such as luggage scanning, dirty bomb detection, and border control.

Features a chapter written by well-known Gamma-Ray Imaging authority Tadayuki Takahashi

Assembled by a combination of top industrial experts and academic professors, this book is more than just a product manual. It is practical enough to provide a solid explanation of presented technologies, incorporating material that offers an optimal balance of scientific and academic theory. With less of a focus on math and physical details, the author concentrates more on exploring exactly how technologies are being used.

With its combined coverage of new materials and innovative new system approaches, as well as a succinct overview of recent developments, this book is an invaluable tool for any engineer, professional, or student working in electronics or an associated field.
