Bryant, R. (2010). Introduction to the science of medical imaging

 Introduction to the Science of Medical Imaging presents scientific imaging principles, introduces the major biomedical imaging modalities, reviews the basics of human and computer image analysis and provides examples of major clinical and research applications. Written by one of the world’s most innovative and highly respected neuroradiologists, Introduction to the Science of Medical Imaging is a landmark text on image acquisition and interpretation.

Eisenberg, R. (2011). A patient’s guide to medical imaging.

Medical imaging now plays a major role in diagnosis, choice of therapy, and follow-up. However, patients are often intimidated by the multiple imaging modalities available, the indications for their use, the imposing equipment, what the examinations are like and how long they last, and the advantages and disadvantages of various procedures.  This book is designed to provide explanations for these and other issues in order to relieve some of the anxiety related to medical imaging studies.

Seeram, E. (2011). Computed tomography for technologists: a comprehensive text.

Hillman, B. (2011). The sorcerer’s apprentice: how medical imaging is changing health care

Many will remember the segment of “The Sorcerer’s Apprentice” in the Disney film Fantasia; it is a perfect metaphor for medical imaging as it stands today. The apprentice magician tests his nascent skills at sorcery by bringing common household items to life and putting them to work. At first, things go well, but eventually he loses control, and chaos ensues. Medical imaging, too, could spin out of control. The benefits of imaging are undeniable. In the past thirty years, innovations like CT, MRI, and PET scanning have not only markedly reduced clinical risk for patients but have also transformed medical practice. Its costs, however, have grown explosively, to the point where imaging expenses have become a political issue.

Forshier, S. (2002). Essentials of radiation biology and protection

New ebook:

Tack, d. & Gevenois, P.A (eds.) (2007) Radiation dose from adult and pediatric multidetector computed tomography

Provides an approach to all the factors that influence the radiation dose and the risk induced by using MDCT in children and adult patients. This book also proposes guidelines for optimization of the radiation dose in order to obtain an image quality sufficient for appropriate diagnostic performance while restricting the dose delivered.
