It can be bought from the PF bookstore with a 10% discount at
The first edition can also be used:
P+L: J. L. Prince & J. M. Links: Medical imaging signals and systems,
Pearson Prentice Hall Bioengineering, 2006, ISBN: 0-13-065353-5
The page and chapter numbers might, however, be different.
The course requires knowledge of signal processing. The theory is described in: Noter til 31610 Anvendt signalbehandling, by S. B. Pedersen, J. A. Jensen, B. Guldbrandsen and K. Henneberg in Danish and can be downloaded here in pdf format. It was previously used in the course on Applied signal processing.
The current course notes for 22052 Applied signal processing is: S. Puthusserypady, Applied Signal Processing, Now publishers inc., Boston – Delft, 2021.
More information about ultrasound fields and their simulation
can be found in: J.A. Jensen:
Linear description of ultrasound
imaging systems, in Notes for the International Summer School on
Advanced Ultrasound Imaging, Technical University of Denmark
May 24 to June 2, 2023, Technical University of Denmark, May, 2023.
The slide showing Hounsfield units for a CT scan can be downloaded
here. The slide
is taken from: E. Krestel (ed.): Imaging systems for medical
diagnostics, Siemens, 1990.
The publication: "Diagnostic radiation physics: A handbook for teachers and students" can be found for free in pdf-format at: https://www.iaea.org/publications/8841/diagnostic-radiology-physics. It is written for students and teachers involved in programs that train medical physicists
for work in diagnostic radiology. It provides, in the
form of a syllabus, a comprehensive overview of the
basic medical physics knowledge required for the
practice of modern diagnostic radiology. This makes
it particularly useful for graduate students and
residents in medical physics programmes. The
material presented in the publication has been
endorsed by the major international organizations and
is the foundation for academic and clinical courses in
diagnostic radiology physics and in emerging areas
such as imaging in radiotherapy.
A note on MR imaging has been written in Danish by Lars G. Hanson explaining
the basics of MR scanning. It can be downloaded here:
Lars G. Hanson: Introduktion til teknikken bag MR-skanning,
MR-Afdelingen, Hvidovre Hospital, 2009.
An English version can be found here.
