Peter Kuchment

CBMS-NSF Regional Conference Series in Applied Mathematics

This book surveys the main mathematical ideas and techniques behind some well-established imaging modalities such as X-ray CT and emission tomography, as well as a variety of newly developing coupled-physics or hybrid techniques, including thermoacoustic tomography.

The Radon Transform and Medical Imaging emphasizes mathematical techniques and ideas arising across the spectrum of medical imaging modalities and explains important concepts concerning inversion, stability, incomplete data effects, the role of interior information, and other issues critical to all medical imaging methods.

For nonexperts, the author provides appendices that cover background information on notation, Fourier analysis, geometric rays, and linear operators. The vast bibliography, with over 825 entries, directs readers to a wide array of additional information sources on medical imaging for further study.

Graduate students and researchers in mathematics, physics, and engineering who are interested in the mathematics behind medical imaging will find this book useful.
