Main description:

This highly comprehensive handbook, edited by one of the world's leading experts in X-ray physics and technology, offers extensive coverage of the field. The book's scope includes X-rays as applied both to radiology for medical diagnostics and to industrial nondestructive testing. Basic introductory aspects are covered, as well as application-specific details on all major radiographic techniques, including mammography, dental radiography, fluoroscopy, computed tomography and veterinary radiography. Industrial radiography and tomography is incorporated, including imaging of artworks. Phase contract X-ray radiography and tomography, radioprotection and educational aspects are also covered.
