It is a great pleasure to announce that our new text book "Medical Imaging Systems - An Introductory Guide“ has been published as open access version under this link:

The document is also published under creative commons licence (attribution) and can be used for teaching, research, and other purposes freely.


This open access book gives a complete and comprehensive introduction to the fields of medical imaging systems, as designed for a broad range of applications. The authors of the book first explain the foundations of system theory and image processing, before highlighting several modalities in a dedicated chapter. The initial focus is on modalities that are closely related to traditional camera systems such as endoscopy and microscopy. This is followed by more complex image formation processes: magnetic resonance imaging, X-ray projection imaging, computed tomography, X-ray phase-contrast imaging, nuclear imaging, ultrasound, and optical coherence tomography.
