The case studies provided in Case Studies for Advances in Paleoimaging will provide the reader real-world scenarios and case examples that will help prepare researchers to discover new ways to apply the various modalities associated with the technology. This book is a follow up to the authors classic work Paleoimgaging (2009) and companion to Advances in Paleoimaging (2020). The case examples outlined demonstrate the problem-solving nature of imaging research and the application of critical thought to unique problems.
Further, Case Studies for Advances in Paleoimaging demonstrates the incredible depth of application of these modalities including photography, endoscopy, x-ray fluorescence, plane radiography, digital radiography, and advanced imaging modalities like multi-detector computed tomography, micro-computed tomography, and magnetic resonance. Of particular note, case study seven, Contrast Media Injections, informs the researcher regarding methods to bring out specific anatomic structures that may be the target of a given research question.
Intended for the students, faculty, and seasoned researchers, Case Studies for Advances in Paleoimaging presents actual cases from the authors’ vast experience in the application of paleoimaging modalities in order to answer unique research problems. The book also serves as a field manual for future current and researchers in approach similar, or even new cases, that present unique challenges. These cases demonstrate how the varied imaging methodologies can provide data which greatly enriches our understanding of the subject at hand, be it ancient cultural remains, forensic recovery, museum holdings, or other anthropological and archaelogical artifacts.
