Observer Performance Methods for Diagnostic Imaging: Foundations Modeling and Applications with R-Based Examples (Imaging in Medical Diagnosis and Therapy)
Überblick:Pressestimmen 'This book will benefit individuals interested in observer performance evaluations in diagnostic medical imaging and provide additional insights to those that have worked in the field for many years.'-- from the Foreword by Gary T. Barnes Professor Emeritus Department of Radiology University of Alabama Birmingham 'As opposed to most of the books with a primary statistical orientation this book presents the technology evaluation methodology from the point of view of radiological physics and contrasts the purely physical evaluation of image quality with the determination of diagnostic outcome through the study of observer performance. The reader is taken through the arguments with concrete examples illustrated by code in R an open source statistical language.' -- Harold L. Kundel Emeritus Professor Department of Radiology Perelman School of Medicine University of Pennsylvania Über den Autor und weitere Mitwirkende Dev P. Chakraborty received his PhD in physics in 1977 from the University of Rochester NY. Following postdoctoral fellowships at the University of Pennsylvania (UPENN) and the University of Alabama at Birmingham (UAB) since 1982 he has worked as a clinical diagnostic imaging physicist. He is American Board of Radiology certified in Diagnostic Radiological Physics and Medical Nuclear Physics (1987). He has held faculty positions at UAB (1982 - 1988) UPENN (1988-2002) and the University of Pittsburgh (2002-2016). At UPENN he supervised hospital imaging equipment quality control resident physics instruction and conducted independent research. He is an author on 78 peer-reviewed publications the majority of which are first-authored. He has received research funding from the Whittaker Foundation the Office of Women's Health the FDA the DOD and has served as principal investigator on several NIH RO1 grants.
