Imaging Life is an accessible textbook that covers scientific imaging, from creating pictures with a wide range of instruments, to processing and analyzing them.  It discusses imaging techniques and problems using biological subjects at many different scales in time and space.  Divided into three sections, Imaging Life opens with chapters on how to create successful scientific images, from image capture through analysis, followed by chapters on image processing and concluding with a section covering the theory behind common imaging modalities, including X-Ray, MRI and ultrasound.


Based on material developed for a web-based textbook for the author’s upper level course on biological imaging at Texas A&M University, Imaging Life is a comprehensive guide to the complex world of acquiring, analyzing, editing, and presenting images, both moving and still, in the life sciences.
