Title: Medical Imaging and X ray Optics

Abstract

Basic concepts on imaging are presented and the necessity of image quality parameters is discussed. The physical principles and main characteristics of the most popular medical imaging techniques are briefly described. In the particular case of X rays, the principles of the modern phase sensitive techniques are presented as well as the optical systems involved.
