This encyclopedia is the first to offer in-depth coverage of imaging science and technology from a diverse range of applications, techniques and fields of study.
Today imaging is used by astronomers to map distant galaxies, oceanographers to map the sea floor, chemists to map the distribution of atoms on a surface, physicians to map the functionality of the brain and electrical engineers to map electromagnetic fields around power lines. With this encyclopedia, scientists, engineers and physicians can understand more about the science and technology behind the imaging techniques they are currently using and learn the latest technologies.
Diverse coverage offers the ability to learn from applications in archeology, aviation, astronomy, chemistry, forensics, geography, mathematics, medicine, meteorology, microscopy, oceanography, surveillance and more....and how to apply those imaging solutions to many different problems.
Also available in a user-friendly, online edition The new electronic version of the Encyclopedia, accessible through Wiley InterScience, offers enhanced browsing, searching and cross-referencing capabilities.
