Summary
This book examines x-ray imaging physics and reviews linear systems theory and its application to signal and noise propagation. The first half addresses the physics of important imaging modalities now in use: ultrasound, CT, MRI, and the recently emerging flat panel x-ray detectors and their application to mammography. The second half describes the relationship between image quality metrics and visual perception of the diagnostic information carried by medical images
