Éditeur : Taylor Francis Inc, United States

Date d'édition : 2012

Reliure : Hardback

Etat du livre : New

Description :

Language: English . Brand New Book. Written by an interdisciplinary team of medical doctors, computer scientists, physicists, engineers, and mathematicians, Correction Techniques in Emission Tomography presents various correction methods used in emission tomography to generate and enhance images. It discusses the techniques from a computer science, mathematics, and physics viewpoint. The book gives a comprehensive overview of correction techniques at different levels of the data processing workflow. It covers nuclear medicine imaging, hybrid emission tomography (PET-CT, SPECT-CT, PET-MRI, PET-ultrasound), and optical imaging (fluorescence molecular tomography). It illustrates basic principles as well as recent advances, such as model-based iterative algorithms and 4D methods. An important aspect of the book is on new and sophisticated motion correction techniques in PET imaging. These techniques enable high-resolution, high-quality images, leading to better imaging analysis and image-based diagnostics. Reflecting state-of-the-art research, this volume explores the range of problems that occur in emission tomography. It looks at how the resulting images are affected and presents practical compensation methods to overcome the problems and improve the images. N° de réf. du libraire AA69781439812983

Critique:

It is refreshing to have a text on emission molecular imaging relevant to animals and human beings with an emphasis on those factors that detract from resolution and quantification. This book implicitly distinguishes between molecular imaging of emitters and molecular imaging provided by magnetic resonance techniques such as magnetic resonance spectroscopy, magnetic resonance imaging of hyperpolarized and other contrast agents, and other magnetic resonance methods wherein the response to the injected pattern of the radiofrequency field is measured. ? In sum, this book shows how researchers have overcome limitations in emission tomography noted 40 years ago and have brought the methods to the goal of high spatial resolution and quantification. Most importantly, these advances have enabled clinically useful applications not available to other diagnostic methods.
?From the Foreword by Thomas F. Budinger, University of California, Berkeley, USA

"This is a fairly comprehensive survey of current and future applications of emission tomography and associated reconstruction, correction, and image post-processing methods, with an emphasis on quantitative preclinical and clinical molecular imaging research (mostly PET). An advanced book, it is one written primarily from a computational science perspective. This book would benefit most those scientists with at least basic prior knowledge of the underlying physics and applications of, as well as a research interest in, PET, SPECT, and hybrid molecular imaging."
?William D Erwin, MS, University of Texas MD Anderson Cancer Center, Houston, USA
