In 1995 Willi A. Kalender was appointed full professor and director of the newly established Institute of Medical Physics at the Friedrich-Alexander-University Erlangen-Nurnberg, Germany. His main research interests are in the area of diagnostic imaging, the development and introduction of volumetric spiral CT was a particular focus. He is involved in many international research projects in the fields of Multimodal Imaging and Optimisation of CT and Dosimetry and others. November 2007 Willi Kalender was awarded the European Science Foundation's Latsis Prize which in 2007 was dedicated to the field of medical imaging.
"Computed Tomography is one of the few comprehensive books about CTimaging principles ... Overall, I highly recommend Computed Tomography. Written by a true pioneer inthe field, it is a high-quality addition to any CT library."(Radiologic Technology, 1 January 2012)
