Computed Tomography discusses the history of X-ray computed tomography (CT), the design and physical operating principles of computed tomography apparatus, the algorithms for image reconstruction and the quality assessment criteria of tomography scanners. The considerations of algorithms for image reconstruction from projections and the exploration of crucial problems in the technique of medical imaging will be of particular interest to those working in the field.
Some of the topics covered in most detail are reconstruction methods related to tomography scanners and computer simulation studied through reconstruction algorithms. The information included in this book is designed to guide readers in the creation of a simulation environment in which virtual tomography projections can be obtained in all basic projection systems.
Computed Tomography will appeal to a wide audience: students and researchers alike will appreciate its relevance to such disciplines as biomedical engineering, medical electronics, computer science and medicine.
