The cornerstone guide for designing tomorrow's medical imaging facilities The Architecture of Medical Imaging is the foremost guide to the design of state-of-the-art medical imaging facilities for radiography, MRI, and CT and PET scans. Written by an industry expert, this useful resource discusses complex issues in a user-friendly language that is fully understandable to healthcare planners, department heads, and executives. No other reference makes it easier to understand the technical requirements of radiological equipment and procedures. The Architecture of Medical Imaging is divided into six convenient parts: * Part 1 explains the importance of quality design and how it relates to changes in the healthcare and medical imaging industries * Part 2 describes how to organize and manage an architectural project from the owner's perspective * Part 3 presents the vast range of today's imaging techniques, as well as those still in research and development * Part 4 addresses important planning and design concepts for medical imaging facilities * Part 5 discusses medical imaging trends and their impact on facility design * Part 6 provides useful appendices that examine specific imaging facility projectspulsed Doppler so that the color flow map can be used to guide placement of the sample volume of the pulsed Doppler system. ... However, with the price of powerful microprocessors falling, 3-D ultrasound is now available on many machines.
