Ionizing Radiation Detectors For Medical Imaging With an emphasis on detector fundamentals and detector properties, this detailed text covers both radiology and nuclear medicine.

Where necessary, software and specific applications are described in depth. Doctors often use medical imaging procedures to determine the best treatment options for patients.

Imaging procedures are medical tests that allow doctors to see inside the body in order to diagnose, treat, and monitor health conditions. Some of these tests involve exposure to ionizing radiation which can present risks to patients.

W R Leo Techniques for Nuclear and Particle Physics Experiments Springer-Verlag. The development of radiation detectors capable of delivering spatial information about gamma-ray interactions was one of the key enabling technologies for nuclear medicine imaging and, eventually.

This chapter provides an overview of the wide array of clinical applications of ionizing radiation. As is customary, applications are grouped here into diagnostic and therapeutic uses. These two categories are further divided by whether the ionizing radiation is administered through external or internal by: 1.

Introduction. Exposure to ionising radiation is inherent in daily life and the average worldwide exposure from all sources is ∼3 mSv/year. Natural background radiation exposure contributes to ∼ mSv/year, however this can vary greatly according to location as it originates from a variety of sources such as cosmic rays, rocks and : A.

Ribeiro, O. Husson, N. Drey, I. Murray, K. May, J. Thurston, W. Oyen. The topic of this book is the use of scintillating materials in the detection of ionising radiation for medical imaging. The text surveys the state of the art in radiation detectors for medical imaging, followed by an in-depth review of all aspects of the use of scintillating materials.

Featuring contributions from leading experts and pioneers in their respective fields, this book: Describes x-ray spectral imaging detectors based on cadmium zinc telluride (CdZnTe) and cadmium telluride (CdTe) materials.

Signal Processing for Radiation Detectors provides researchers, engineers, and graduate students working in disciplines such as nuclear physics and engineering, environmental and biomedical engineering, and medical physics and radiological science, the knowledge to design their own systems, optimize available systems or to set up new experiments.

The vast majority of artificial exposure to ionizing radiation in the general population comes from uses in medicine or allied health for diagnosis and therapy. Medical ionizing radiation contributes mSv to the annual average dose of radiation (>14%).

The most frequently used modality of radiation is diagnostic x-ray examinations.The book provides a comprehensive compilation of fundamentals, technical solutions and applications for medical imaging systems.

It is intended as a handbook for students in biomedical engineering, for medical physicists, and for engineers working on medical technologies, as well as for lecturers at universities and engineering schools. For qualified personnel at hospitals, and physicians.Over the last 35 years, exposure of the general public to ionizing radiation for medical purposes has increased remarkably.

Primarily due to frequent use of Computerized Axial Tomography (CT) in the detection and monitoring of many pathologies, in both intpatients, 1 and outpatients, 2 dose delivery to the population has increased from mSev to mSev 3 from to Author: Michael J Meagher.
