Images are very important in the remainder of this book. They may be formed by the eye, a camera, an xray machine, a nuclear medicine camera, magnetic resonance imaging, or ultrasound. The concepts developed in Chapter 11 can be used to understand and describe image quality. The same concepts are also used to reconstruct computed tomographic or magnetic resonance slice images of the body. A very complete, advanced mathematical treatment of all kinds of images is found in a 1500-page book by Barrett and Myers (2004).
