Editorial Reviews


This is an excellent publication and represents much dedication and hard work on behalf of the authors and, in particular, the editor. … a valuable text for all concerned with the science of imaging whether in industry or in the health service. All chapters are not only fact-stating but also thought-provoking … very readable text …
-RAD Magazine, December 1990

Developments in digital radiography, together with an analysis of the computing requirements of the various techniques, complete this excellent text. The authors have done a remarkable job in covering such a wide subject so well in such a short book.
-Image Processing Magazine

Steve Webb has produced a first-class book. Because The Physics of Medical Imaging is up-to-date in a rapidly changing field, it is the text of choice for teaching graduate research students in this new and exciting subspeciality of physics.
-Physics Today

This is a book well worth the money and I can strongly recommend it both as desk and bedside reading.

Top Customer Reviews

Format: Paperback
The second page of my copy of this book states:

Reprinted 1995, 1996, 1998, 2000, 2002, 2003

This is pretty much the same text published in 1988 (after corrections)


Fuzzy 80's CT scan illustrations

Nothing on fat suppression, or more modern image acquisition sequences in the "Nuclear Magnetic Imaging" chapter

Definitely no mention of harmonic ultrasound

Many anachronistic references to 'future technological improvements'

I am not sure whether the publisher's reluctance to update this book represents apathy or avarice, but the failure to more frequently revise a textbook in such a rapidly changing area relegates this book from serious consideration as a primary textbook.

Some chapters are quite clear and complete (for example X-ray) but overall the writng style is a little obtuse.

In summary- some good chapters but outdated, stylistically hum-drum and superceded by the numerous other texts in this area.
