by Jan S. Iwanczyk (Editor)


Radiation Detectors for Medical Imaging discusses the current state of the art and future prospects of photon-counting detectors for medical imaging applications. Featuring contributions from leading experts and pioneers in their respective fields, this book:

  • Describes x-ray spectral imaging detectors based on cadmium zinc telluride (CdZnTe) and cadmium telluride (CdTe) materials
  • Presents novel computed tomography (CT) and x-ray clinical applications of photon-counting detectors
  • Considers the future use of CT scanners as both an anatomical and a functional modality in areas typically reserved for nuclear medicine techniques
  • Addresses pulse pileup, incomplete charge collection, and other phenomena that can degrade the spectral response of photon-counting detectors
  • Examines silicon photomultipliers used in single-photon emission computed tomography (SPECT) and positron emission tomography (PET) systems

Radiation Detectors for Medical Imaging explores cutting-edge technologies that play a vital role in the detection, diagnosis, and treatment of major human diseases, including heart disease and cancer―the top killers in developed countries.
