The Architecture of Medical Imaging: Designing Healthcare Facilities for Advanced Radiological Diagnostic and Therapeutic Techniques
Bill Rostenberg, FAIA, FACHA (Published by John Wiley and Sons, Inc, 2006)

Mr. Rostenberg is an expert in the field of designing facilities for medical imaging and his book both broadly addresses the approach to designing a healthcare facility as well as provides a wealth of specific information on imaging technologies and their architectural needs. The publisher's book description summarizes the contents:

* Part 1 explains the importance of quality design and how it relates to changes in the healthcare and medical imaging industries
* Part 2 describes how to organize and manage an architectural project from the owner's perspective
* Part 3 (by Steven C. Horii, MD, FACR, FSCAR) presents the vast range of today's imaging techniques, as well as those still in research and development
* Part 4 addresses important planning and design concepts for medical imaging facilities
* Part 5 discusses medical imaging trends and their impact on facility design
* Part 6 provides useful appendices that examine specific imaging facility projects
