Classics in Applied Mathematics #33: Principles of Computerized Tomographic Imagingby Avinash C Kak
Synopses & Reviews
Principles of Computerized Tomographic Imaging provides a comprehensive, tutorial-style introduction to the algorithms for reconstructing cross-sectional images from projection data and contains a complete overview of the engineering and signal processing algorithms necessary for tomographic imaging. In addition to the purely mathematical and algorithmic aspects of these algorithms, the book also discusses the artifacts caused by the nature of the various forms of energy sources that can be used for generating the projection data. Kak and Slaney go beyond theory, emphasizing real-world applications and detailing the steps necessary for building a tomographic system. Since the fundamental aspects of tomographic reconstruction algorithms have remained virtually the same since this book was originally published, it is just as useful today as it was in 1987.
Book News Annotation:
Despite advances in CT scanning in medical and geophysical applications since this work's original publication in 1988 by IEEE Press, the engineering and signal processing algorithms introduced in this abridged replication are still relevant to practitioners and students as they provide a theoretical framework for treating such issues as energy source artifacts, noise, resolution, and sampling in reconstructing cross-sectional images from projection data. Illustrated with scans and diagrams. Kak teaches electrical and computer engineering at Purdue U. Slaney is with IBM Almaden Research Center in San Jose, CA.
