Principles of computerized tomographic imaging. (English) Zbl 0721.92011

IEEE Engineering in Medicine and Biology Society. New York: IEEE Press. x, 329 p. $ 51.95 (1988).
The purpose of this book is to provide a tutorial overview on the subject of computerized tomographic imaging. We expect the book to be useful for practicing engineers and scientists for gaining an understanding of what can and cannot be done with tomographic imaging. Toward this end, we have tried to strike a balance among purely algorithmic issues, topics dealing with how to generate data for reconstruction in different domains, and artifacts inherent to different data collection strategies. (From the preface.)
