The Safe Use of Ultrasound in Medical Diagnosis
by Gail ter Haar (ed.) - The British Institute of Radiology , 2012
Written at a level intended to be accessible to readers from all backgrounds, this book covers the basic concepts important for the safe use of ultrasound and points the interested reader to the extensive literature on these topics.
Radioisotopes in Medicine
by Earl W. Phelan - United States Atomic Energy Commission , 1966
Radioisotopes play an important role in medicine. For the diagnostician, small quantities of many isotopes serve as tools to aid him in gaining information about normal and abnormal life processes. Research is continuing to add to our knowledge.
Ultrasound in Obstetrics and Gynecology: A Practical Approach
by Alfred Abuhamad (ed.) - GLOWM , 2014
This text concisely covers the physics of ultrasound and how to exploit the features of today's equipment to optimize every image, while using methods to assure that the fetus is exposed to the lowest ultrasound energies.
Tracking Radiation Exposure from Medical Diagnostic Procedures
- National Academies Press , 2014
The growing use of medical diagnostic procedures is correlated with tremendous and undeniable benefits in the care of patients. However, it is accompanied by growing concerns about the risks associated with procedures that utilize ionizing radiation.
Positron Emission Tomography
by Sandro Misciagna (ed.) - InTech , 2013
Positron Emission Tomography is a nuclear medicine technique first used to study the brain. The book reviews some of developments in PET instrumentation, with emphasis on data acquisition and image formation, with applications in human research.
Manual of Diagnostic Ultrasound
- World Health Organization , 2011
This manual, a basic reference text that covers ultrasound techniques, recognition of normal anatomical features and differential diagnosis, is the first of two volumes which extensively cover modern diagnostic and therapeutic ultrasonography.
Basic Physics of Digital Radiography
by Kieran Maher - Wikibooks , 2011
