Since its first edition in 1980, Essential Physics forRadiographers has earned an international reputation as a clear andstraightforward introduction to the physics of radiography. Now inits fourth edition, this book remains a core textbook for studentradiographers. The authors have retained the pragmatic approach of earliereditions and continue to target the book particularly at thosestudents who find physics a difficult subject to grasp. The fourthedition builds on the major revisions introduced in the thirdedition. The content has been updated to reflect recent advances inimaging technology. The chapter on Radiation Safety has beencompletely rewritten in the light of the latest changes in relevantlegislation, and a re-examination of the physical principlesunderpinning magnetic resonance imaging forms the basis of a newchapter. Worked examples and calculations again feature strongly,and the innovative and popular Maths Help File, guides readersgently through the mathematical steps and concepts involved. Thereference citations have been updated and now include Internetsources.

Since its initial publication in 1979, Essential Physics for Radiographers has earned an international reputation as a clear and straightforward introduction to the physics of radiography, and remains the core textbook for student radiographers. This third edition reflects the change from diploma to graduated radiography education. Nonetheless, the authors have retained the pragmatic approach of earlier editions and continue to provide a text for those students who find it difficult to grasp the subject of physics. The book has undergone major revisions and the content has been broadened to reflect the recent advances in imaging technology. New topics include magnetic resonance, lasers and alternating current theory. Fundamental physical concepts such as internal energy and post-Bohr atomic theory are more fully discussed in order to stimulate students to find out more information. Terminology has been revised to bring it in line with current educational and scientific practice, and decimal numbering of sections has been introduced. Information sources have been referenced and an extensive bibliography is provided. New diagrams are included, others have been redrawn with greater accuracy, and tables of physical data have been included. Worked examples and calculations feature strongly, and the innovative context-sensitive Maths Help File guides readers gently through the mathematical steps and concepts.

Principles and Application of Radiological Physics 6E provides comprehensive and easy-to-follow coverage of the principles and application of physics for both diagnostic and therapeutic radiography students. Regardless of changes in technology and clinical grading, the most important role of the radiographer remains unchanged - ensuring the production of high quality images and optimal treatment. These should be performed with the minimum of radiation hazard to patients, staff and others. An understanding of physics and the basics of radiographic technology is essential to do this effectively. The book covers all the physics and mathematics required by undergraduate diagnostic and therapeutic radiography students, catering for those who do not have a mathematics qualification as well as for those who do. NEW TO THIS EDITION: A focus upon application of physics to reflect current teaching approaches Completely revised structure, leading from science principles to applications New chapters on CT, MRI, ultrasound, PET, RNI, mammography and digital imaging Electronic learning resources for students, hosted on EVOLVE *Strong links between theory and practice throughout *Clear and concise text Focus on application of physics, as well as principles New, updated 2-colour design New Sections - Equipment for X-ray production, The Radiographic Image and Diagnostic Imaging Technologies Electronic learning resources for students support the text

This book explains the mathematical and physical principles of medical imaging and image processing. Beginning with an introduction to digital image processing, it goes on to cover the most important imaging modalities in use today: radiography, computed tomography, magnetic resonance imaging, ultrasonic imaging and nuclear medicine imaging. Each chapter includes a short history of the imaging modality, physics of the signal and its interaction with tissue, image formation or reconstruction process, image quality, different types of equipment, examples of clinical applications, biological effects, safety issues, and future expectations. The remainder of the book deals with image analysis and visualization for diagnosis, therapy, and surgery after images are available. A CD packaged with the book includes the text, all the images in color, and some animated images. Both students and beginning biomedical engineers will welcome this well-balanced, copiously illustrated treatment of medical imaging.

This book provides a comprehensive and current review of selected radiotherapy treatment units. Not only will it be invaluable to undergraduates but also to qualified staff who have not had the opportunity to study the academic principles behind the dramatic advances in radiotherapy equipment in recent years. Each chapter contains the basic physical principles associated with each piece of equipment, building upon these ideas to examine the structure, function and applications of the machine in question. Critical evaluation of each piece of equipment is included to allow the undergraduate student to begin to develop such skills, and learning points incorporated through each chapter encourage the student to apply this fundamental learning to their own specific and unique clinical environment.
