This chapter includes only brief menton of MRI, because of the very different physics behind it, and of ultrasonography, because of the diffractive and refractive features of the radiator and tissues being examined. Likewise, little mention is made of the reasons for different modalities or techniques for merging their results.
The final chapters address the special problems of ultrasound, digging as far in as the wave equations and the common approximations that make the wave equations at least somewhat practical as tools for solution. These chapters also address more advanced and computationally exhorbitant algorithms, though not in nearly the detail that back-projection got in the earlier chapters.
This book first appeared in 1988, which seems like centuries ago in the time scale of tomography algorithm development. Even the 2001 update is aging, and it never really went into the Feldkamp algorithms now widely in use.Read more ›
The images look like they were scanned/printed in black and white instead of grey shades (which is very surprising, knowing that the pdf version available on the web looks perfectly fine).
I am not sure I would have bought this book knowing how bad the print quality was beforehand, though it is still more convenient than the pdf sometimes.

This book is one of the clearest introductions to tomography. I use it as a text in my course, and my students have also liked it.Published on June 5, 2004
This is still a great text on the principles of tomographic imaging. Buy it!Published on April 21, 2003
