About the Lectures


The effect of radiation transport and quantum noise on image quality is explored in the context of both conventional and newly developed systems. Radiation sources for imaging, mathematical descriptions of image quality, and the performance of humans as visual observers are covered. Specific systems considered include phosphor screen and direct digital radiography systems, Anger camera systems, x-ray computed tomography (CT) systems, and Positron Emission Tomography (PET) systems. Particular emphasis is given to the statistical processes important in radiographic and nuclear medicine imaging systems.

Medical imaging refers to the techniques and processes used to create images of the human body (or parts thereof) for clinical purposes (medical procedures seeking to reveal, diagnose or examine disease) or medical science (including the study of normal anatomy and function). As a discipline and in its widest sense, it is part of biological imaging and incorporates radiology (in the wider sense), radiological sciences, endoscopy, (medical) thermography, medical photography and microscopy (e.g. for human pathological investigations). Measurement and recording techniques which are not primarily designed to produce images, such as electroencephalography (EEG) and magnetoencephalography (MEG) and others, but which produce data susceptible to be represented as maps (i.e. containing positional information), can be seen as forms of medical imaging.
