Note Generation of X-rays -- Introduction to physics in medical X-ray diagnosis -- Radiation Detector Physics -- Material Identification Method with the Aim of Medical Imaging -- Summary
This book first provides readers with an introduction to the underlying physics and state-of-the-art application of photon counting detectors for X-ray imaging. The authors explain that a photon-counting imaging detector can realize quantitative analysis because the detector can derive X-ray attenuation information based on the analysis of intensity changes of individual X-ray. To realize this analysis, it is important to consider the physics of an object and detector material. In this book, the authors introduce a novel analytical procedure to create quantitative X-ray images for medical diagnosis. Provides a detailed explanation of the principle of imaging using an energy integrating detector (EID) which is currently being used as an X-ray imaging detector in medicine; Provides a single-source reference that enables readers to understand photon-counting techniques, including the underlying basic physics, specific physics of the detector, novel analytical procedure and future scope; Includes necessary background information and state-of-the-art applications; Demonstrates procedure using a simulation study and a proto-type imaging detector; Presents information in a manner which makes it easier for readers to reproduce results
