In 1890, Professor Arthur Willis Goodspeed, a professor of physics at Pennsylvania USA was working with an English born photographer, William N Jennings, when they accidentally produced a Röntgen Ray picture. Unfortunately, the significance of their findings were overlooked, and the formal discovery of X-rays was credited to Wilhelm Roentgen in 1895. The discovery has since transformed the practice of medicine, and over the course of the past 130 years, the development of new radiological techniques has continued to grow. The impact has been seen in virtually every hospital in the world, from the routine use of ultrasound for pregnancy scans, through to the diagnosis of complex medical issues such as brain tumours. More subtly, X-rays were also used in the discovery of DNA and in military combat, and their social influence through popular culture can be seen in cartoons, books, movies and art. Written by two radiologists who have a passion for the history of their field, The History of Radiology is a beautifully illustrated review of the remarkable developments within radiology and the scientists and pioneers who were involved. This engaging and authoritative history will appeal to a wide audience including medical students studying for the Diploma in the History of Medicine of the Society of Apothecaries (DHMSA), doctors, medical physicists, medical historians and radiographers.

First envisioned by members of the radiology community, Picture Archiving and Communication Systems (PACS) have developed to affect the entire spectrum of health care delivery. Enabled by recent advances in information technology, the PACS concept of an integrated system has progressed rapidly and proven greater than the sum of its parts. No longer does discussion center on "if." purchase justification has given way to the "how" of best practices for installing and maintaining a PACS, and best uses for clinical service, research, and education. PACS and Imaging Informatics: Basic Principles and Applications addresses all the latest developments in this exciting field, from the electronic patient record with image distribution to the full range of topics in digital imaging. Written in clear, nontechnical language, this text features coverage of: Web-based PACS Fault-tolerant image archive servers Security Industrial standards Integrating the healthcare enterprise Clinical management systems Light imaging Digital radiography Teleconsultation PACS-based imaging informatics PACS and Imaging Informatics uses the framework of imaging informatics to explain PACS, making the text accessible to those without advanced knowledge of physics, engineering, math, or information technology. With the most systematic and thorough coverage of practical applications available, this text is the complete guide for all those involved in designing, implementing, and using PACS.

The aim of this book is to understand and critically appraise science-based transgression dynamics in their whole complexity. It includes contributions from experts with different disciplinary backgrounds, such as philosophy, history and sociology. Thus, it is in itself an example of boundary transgression.Scientific disciplines and their objects have tended to be seen as permanent and distinct. However, science is better conceived as an activity that constantly surpasses, erases and rebuilds all kinds of boundaries, either disciplinary, socio-ethical or ecological. This transgressive capacity, a characteristic trait of science and its applications, defines us as “knowledge societies.” However, scientific and technological developments are also sources of serious environmental and social concerns.

Digital radiography is a general term describing any projection radiological system in which the image exists in digital form at some stage between acquisition and viewing. In an earlier form, radiographic films were dig itized in an attempt to enhance and redisplay information of interest. The field has evolved to its current state, in which X-ray signals are detected electronically, converted to digital form, and processed prior to being recorded and displayed. A primary goal of digital radiography is the re moval of interfering effects from secondary structures in an image, so that clinically significant details can be displayed with enhanced visibility. The achievement of this goal involves many parameters, including con trast agents, subtraction techniques, processing techniques, filtering tech niques, system noise, and quantitative aspects. It is the purpose of this book to present material by noted individuals in the field covering several of the above topics.
