Introduction to Medical Imaging

 Klaus Mueller
Description: Milestone applications: a publication of The Theory of Sound (Lord Rayleigh, 1877). the discovery of piezoelectric effect (Pierre Curie, 1880)- enabled generation and detection of ultrasonic waves. first practical use in World War One for detecting submarines. followed by- nondestructive testing of metals (airplane wings, bridges), seismology. first clinical use for locating brain tumors (Karl Dussik, Friederich Dussik, 1942). the first gray scale images were produced in 1950 - in real time by Siemens device in 1965. electronic beam-steering using phased-array technology in 1968. popular technique since the mid-70s. substantial enhancements since mid-1990.
