Diagnostic Radiology: Recent Advances and Applied Physics in Imaging

by Niranjan Khandelwal, Veena Chowdhury, Arun Kumar Gupta, Sanjay Sharma, Ashu Seith Bhalla, Smriti Hari

The book contains a summary on the advancements in imaging technology using radiography, ultrasonography, digital subtraction angiography, computed tomography and magnetic resonance imaging. They are divided into six sections and each section explains the advancements in ultrasound imaging, computed tomography, magnetic resonance imaging, radiography, update in contrast media and miscellaneous. The imaging has moved from anatomic to functional, from static to real-time and from 2 dimensional to 3 or even 4 dimensional. All these major advancements in the information provided are expected at a faster rate and with lesser radiation dose. The techniques in this book give detailed information about the image optimization, various methods required for reducing or minimizing the artifacts and help in the proper diagnosing and planning of the treatment. A good picture archiving and communication system is the basic requirement of imaging process. The topics such as tools used in radiology, contrast media & its management, radiation hazards, their units, effects and management are covered. The recent techniques applied in radiography like positron emission tomography/computed tomography and positron emission tomography/magnetic resonance are also explained.
