Diagnostic Ultrasound Imaging provides a unified description of the physical principles of ultrasound imaging, signal processing, systems and measurements. This comprehensive reference is a core resource for both graduate students and engineers in medical ultrasound research and design. With continuing rapid technological development of ultrasound in medical diagnosis, it is a critical subject for biomedical engineers, clinical and healthcare engineers and practitioners, medical physicists, and related professionals in the fields of signal and image processing. The book contains 17 new and updated chapters covering the fundamentals and latest advances in the area, and includes four appendices, 450 figures (60 available in color on the companion website), and almost 1,500 references. In addition to the continual influx of readers entering the field of ultrasound worldwide who need the broad grounding in the core technologies of ultrasound, this book provides those already working in these areas with clear and comprehensive expositions of these key new topics as well as introductions to state-of-the-art innovations in this field. Enables practicing engineers, students and clinical professionals to understand the essential physics and signal processing techniques behind modern imaging systems as well as introducing the latest developments that will shape medical ultrasound in the future Suitable for both newcomers and experienced readers, the practical, progressively organized applied approach is supported by hands-on MATLAB® code and worked examples that enable readers to understand the principles underlying diagnostic and therapeutic ultrasound Covers the new important developments in the use of medical ultrasound: elastography and high-intensity therapeutic ultrasound. Many new developments are comprehensively reviewed and explained, including aberration correction, acoustic measurements, acoustic radiation force imaging, alternate imaging architectures, bioeffects: diagnostic to therapeutic, Fourier transform imaging, multimode imaging, plane wave compounding, research platforms, synthetic aperture, vector Doppler, transient shear wave elastography, ultrafast imaging and Doppler, functional ultrasound and viscoelastic models

Das Buch befasst sich mit den weltweit laufenden Bemühungen, Health Technology Assessment (HTA) im Gesundheitswesen zu etablieren. Der Autor stellt die historische Entwicklung von HTA dar und präsentiert eine sorgfältige Definition des Begriffes. Dazu gehört eine kritische Auseinandersetzung mit den Grundprinzipien von HTA sowie der damit verknüpften rechtlichen Aspekte. Neben Aufbau und Unterarten von HTAs wird zudem ein Lösungsansatz vorgestellt, um HTA-Arten klar voneinander abzugrenzen. Ein Grossteil der Arbeit umfasst eine zugängliche Einführung in die an HTA beteiligten Disziplinen. Zudem werden ausgewählte nationale und internationale HTA-Agenturen porträtiert. Überlegungen zur „Best-Practice“ und ein dreistufiger Lösungsansatz zur Implementation von HTA runden das Werk ab. Es ist das erste Werk, dass sich in so ganzheitlicher Weise mit der Thematik auseinandersetzt.

Marie Sklodowska Curie, Trägerin des Nobelpreises für Physik und für Chemie, untersuchte die von Henri Becquerel beobachtete Strahlung von Uranverbindungen. Gemeinsam mit ihrem Mann Pierre entdeckte sie das Radium und das Polonium und prägte den Begriff „radioaktiv“. Ihre Forschungsergebnisse fasste sie in ihrer hier vorliegenden Dissertation zusammen, die innerhalb eines Jahres in fünf Sprachen übersetzt wurde. Sorgfältig bearbeiteter Nachdruck der deutschsprachigen Ausgabe aus dem Jahr 1904.
