This book addresses the state of the art in the design of semiconductor detectors and integrated circuits, in the context of medical imaging using ionizing radiation. It explains how circuits for radiation are built, focusing on practical information about how they are being used, rather than mathematical details. It also discusses new opportunities in X-ray detection, computer tomography, and nuclear medicine. Written by industrial and academic experts, the text also explores emerging detector technologies, circuit design techniques, new materials, and innovative system approaches.
