This is a practical guide to tomographic image reconstruction with projection data, with strong focus on Computed Tomography (CT) and Positron Emission Tomography (PET). Classic methods such as FBP, ART, SIRT, MLEM and OSEM are presented with modern and compact notation, with the main goal of guiding the reader from the comprehension of the mathematical background through a fast-route to real practice and computer implementation of the algorithms. Accompanied by example data sets, real ready-to-run Python toolsets and scripts and an overview the latest research in the field, this guide will be invaluable for graduate students and early-career researchers and scientists in medical physics and biomedical engineering who are beginners in the field of image reconstruction. A top-down guide from theory to practical implementation of PET and CT reconstruction methods, without sacrificing the rigor of mathematical background Accompanied by Python source code snippets, suggested exercises, and supplementary ready-to-run examples for readers to download from the CRC Press website Ideal for those willing to move their first steps on the real practice of image reconstruction, with modern scientific programming language and toolsets Daniele Panetta is a researcher at the Institute of Clinical Physiology of the Italian National Research Council (CNR-IFC) in Pisa. He earned his MSc degree in Physics in 2004 and specialisation diploma in Health Physics in 2008, both at the University of Pisa. From 2005 to 2007, he worked at the Department of Physics "E. Fermi" of the University of Pisa in the field of tomographic image reconstruction for small animal imaging micro-CT instrumentation. His current research at CNR-IFC has as its goal the identification of novel PET/CT imaging biomarkers for cardiovascular and metabolic diseases. In the field micro-CT imaging, his interests cover applications of three-dimensional morphometry of biosamples and scaffolds for regenerative medicine. He acts as reviewer for scientific journals in the field of Medical Imaging: Physics in Medicine and Biology, Medical Physics, Physica Medica, and others. Since 2012, he is adjunct professor in Medical Physics at the University of Pisa. Niccolò Camarlinghi is a researcher at the University of Pisa. He obtained his MSc in Physics in 2007 and his PhD in Applied Physics in 2012. He has been working in the field of Medical Physics since 2008 and his main research fields are medical image analysis and image reconstruction. He is involved in the development of clinical, pre-clinical PET and hadron therapy monitoring scanners. At the time of writing this book he was a lecturer at University of Pisa, teaching courses of life-sciences and medical physics laboratory. He regularly acts as a referee for the following journals: Medical Physics, Physics in Medicine and Biology, Transactions on Medical Imaging, Computers in Biology and Medicine, Physica Medica, EURASIP Journal on Image and Video Processing, Journal of Biomedical and Health Informatics.

The Second Course in Statistics is an increasingly important offering since more students are arriving at college having taken AP Statistics in high school. Mendenhall/Sincich’s A Second Course in Statistics is the perfect book for courses that build on the knowledge students gain in AP Statistics, or the freshman Introductory Statistics course. A Second Course in Statistics: Regression Analysis, Seventh Edition, focuses on building linear statistical models and developing skills for implementing regression analysis in real situations. This text offers applications for engineering, sociology, psychology, science, and business. The authors use real data and scenarios extracted from news articles, journals, and actual consulting problems to show how to apply the concepts. In addition, seven case studies, now located throughout the text after applicable chapters, invite students to focus on specific problems, and are suitable for class discussion. Features + Benefits Readability was a main goal of the authors, whose intent was to create a teaching text rather than a reference text. Concepts are explained in a logical, intuitive manner with worked-out examples. Model building is fundamental to any regression analysis and is introduced in Chapters 4—8, then emphasized throughout the text. Development of regression skills: in addition to teaching basic concepts and methodology, this text stresses its usage in solving applied problems. Real data is used in examples and exercises to maintain the applied nature of this text. Examples illustrate the important aspects of model construction, data analysis, and the interpretation of results. Exercises are located at the end of every section and chapter. Nearly every exercise is based on data and research extracted from news or journal articles. Seven case studies address real-life research problems and are suitable for class discussion. While working through these, students can see how regression analysis is used to answer practical questions, and can then formulate appropriate statistical models for the analysis and interpretation of sample data. Data sets for all case studies, exercises, and examples are available on the CD-ROM included with the book and on the Pearson Data Sets website (www.pearsonhighered.com/datasets ). Statistical software instruction includes the latest software packages: SAS®, SPSS®, MINITAB®, and, new to this edition, R. Tutorials are provided on the included CD-ROM and printouts associated with the software are presented and discussed throughout the text. 1.

LASERS have a crucial significance in dental field to overcome some of the disadvantages offered by that of the conventional armamentarium such as drilling sound, anxiety, fear related to conventional handpiece etc. Lasers can be used on both soft and hard tissues and over the time it has proved amenable results. Therefore, modern concepts based on minimal invasive dentistry led to application of Lasers in various fields of dental care. Despite of its Pros and Cons, its advantages makes Laser a ray of hope for the dentistry. This book encompasses the application of Lasers in different aspects of Conservative Dentistry and Endodontics. The text book has simple and easy language and its contents has been taken from various standard journals, textbooks, e-books, website etc.
