Authors: Keith Allen (Society of Brain Mapping and Therapeutics, Villa Park, Illinois, USA) 
Book Description:
The author wrote this book to accomplish three major objectives: 1) For the appreciation of science, the philosophy of science and its beauty and wonder; 2) to explore the quantum paradigm and other important developments in science that are leading the way to important progress in key areas of research; and most importantly, 3) to appreciate how medical technologies are important medical tools that can improve the human condition.

With regard to the first objective, as Carl Sagan implied, science provides us with a better understanding of who we are, our humanity, and even our role in the Universe. Science is a doorway to deeper knowledge about both ourselves and the world we live in. The author thinks that there is nothing more important we as a species can do in this life than to appreciate the beauty and order of our Universe!

The quantum paradigm along with the relativity theory are currently some of our most advanced theories. The author has applied these theories in important ways to medical technologies. Specifically, he explains PET and MRI imaging according to the quantum paradigm, and MEG according to special relativity theory. It was the author’s intent to use the most advanced theories known to provide the best explanation for the operation of these technologies. Consistent with this objective, he made an effort to approach current theoretical limits by discussing quantum field theory and its important applications in PET and MRI imaging technologies.

Most importantly, the author talks about how early disease detection is an effective method that can be applied to many diseases including cancer, heart disease, and many neurological diseases. He argues very simply that early disease detection improves treatment outcomes, and that, if we apply this early detection methodology nationally or even globally, then this could improve the standards of medical care for many millions of people both in American and worldwide!

In addition, the author also has a chapter on ethics, law and policy. It was his goal to emphasize that we have good policies that will be beneficial both here in American as well as internationally. These policies will be beneficial to the Trump Administration and any administration that follows. Most importantly, by applying Kant’s universal principles, we can make the world a better place!

Book Reviews

“As an MRI Technologist and Educator for over 30 years, I have long waited for a publication to tie it all together. Dr. Allen's book has done just that. Difficult scientific disciplines and principles historically responsible for the development of Medical Imaging Modalities are clarified and explained for the experienced Professional and the Student. How Medical Imaging Specialties (MRI, PET, Ultrasound, and X-Ray) help to diagnose and lead to the treatment of patients enforces just how important our jobs as Technologists really are. Based on the information presented, the future truly looks bright for Medical Imaging and, especially, our patients. This is a must read for all in Medicine, Medical Imaging or Research.” - James F. Coffin, Armrit, President of American Registry of MRI Technology

“In Quantum Mechanics, Imaging and Other Technologies Dr. Keith Allen has created a masterpiece. This book understandably correlates complicated concepts of modern physics with real world medical concerns and offers an optimistic glimpse into the future of health care. Dr. Allen has taken an amalgam of exciting thoughts and ideas and synthesized a coherent, cogent and comprehensible work of art. A unique piece of work!” - James S Welsh, MS, MD, FACRO, Author of Sharks Get Cancer, Mole Rats Don't: How Animals Hold the Key to Unlocking Cancer Immunity in Humans, Chairman of the Board, American College of Radiation Oncology, Professor and Director of Clinical and Translational Research, Department of Radiation Oncology,Loyola University Strich School of Medicine, Chief of Radiation Oncology, Edward Hines Jr. VA Hospital
