Medical Imaging Signals and Systems Jerry L. Prince and Jonathan M. Links Upper Saddle River, NJ: Pearson Prentice Hall, 2006 Errata, Version 1.03, March 12, 2007 This errata applies to both the first and second printings of the book. The printing number can identified by looking on the copyright page (on the back of the title page) and finding either of the following: This is the first printing: Printed in the United States of America 10 9 8 7 6 5 4 3 2 1 ISBN 0-13-065353-5 This is the second printing: Printed in the United States of America 10 9 8 7 6 5 4 3 2 ISBN 0-13-065353-5 In the items below, entries starting with an asterisk are errors that should be corrected. Entries that start with a bullet are either typographical corrections or corrections related to clarity. Some corrections were made in the second printing; if so, the item is given the notation "1st printing only."

Page 99: The first sentence of Problem 3.22 should read: Suppose the probability law of a test result for patients with and without a disease are modeled as Gaussian with different ..." The fourth sentence should say "...we call it diseased." Part (a) should read: "Write down the expressions for the probability density functions of the test value ..." Page 100: The caption for Figure P3.3 should read: "Probability density functions showing the test results for normal subjects and patients with disease." Chapter 4: Physics of Radiography Page 114: (1st printing only) Table 4.3 should be modified as shown.

Page 174: The last line of the page should read: 0.15 cm-1 at 75 keV. Chapter 6: Computed Tomography Page 186: In the second paragraph under Answer, in the second line, the first few words should read "increment is 180 /360 = 0.5 ..." Page 203: On the second line, the word "it" should be "its." * Page 207: Equation (6.38) should read: 2 c( D sin ) = c( ) (6.38) D sin 3 Figure 5.22 An H&D curve. * Page 207: Equation (6.39) should read: 2 1 c f ( ) = D c( ) (6.39) 2 sin * Page 207: In Equations (6.40) and (6.41) put a tilde over both p 's as follows: p ~ ( , ).

Page 210: There is an extra closed parenthesis in equation (6.49), which should read: R { f h } = R { f } R {h } (6.49) * Page 210: The sentence immediately after equation (6.49) should read: Notice that the convolution on the left in (6.49) is two-dimensional, while that on the right is one-dimensional. Page 212: The first equation has a typo; it should read: 1 H { f (ar )} = F (q /a ) a2 * Page 216: On the line before equation (6.77), the substitution should be d = L / D , not w = L / D . Page 216: In the 4th line of EXAMPLE 6.6, the word "contract" should be "contrast." 4 * Page 216: The second to the last equation should read: 3T 2 2 2 0 = 5.625 10-9 cm-2 = 3 MN * Page 217: The answer to EXAMPLE 6.6 should be 1.87 1010 minimum Page 220: The word "simply" in Problem 6.5 should be "simplify." Page 220: There is an extra closed parenthesis in the displayed equation in problem 6.9. It should read R { f h } = R { f } R {h } Page 223: In problem 6.16(d), there should only be one * for the convolution (to stay with convention in the book). * Page 223: In problem 6.18, the displayed equation should read: 2 c( D sin ) = c( ) D sin Chapter 7: The Physics of Nuclear Medicine Page 249: (1st printing only) The second line of the Early reference should be indented. * Page 251: In Problem 7.8(a), the DF equation should read DF = e-0.693t / T1/2 Chapter 8: Planar Scintigraphy Page 255: The very last sentence on this page should start: "For every 4 to 5 light" Page 259: There should be a question mark at the end of the question in Example 8.2. Page 261: On the very first line, the word "tomography" should have a period after it instead of a comma. * Page 269: On the second line below equation (8.12), the variable r should be replaced by |z |. * Page 270: The first equation on the page should read: d b+r RC = (l + b + r ) = d + d. l l The second equation should read: d b+r RC = (2l + b + r ) = d + d < RC . 2l 2l * Page 280: (1st printing only) The fourth line of Problem 8.4 should read: A is at a distance of r from the camera, directly below the hole. 5Download Link:
