This title is directed primarily towards health care professionals outside of the United States. It provides easy-to-follow and comprehensive coverage of all the essential principles of physics that undergraduate diagnostic radiography students need to know in order to operate diagnostic equipment more easily, effectively and safely. It also covers the basic physics that therapeutic radiographers require in order to provide optimal treatment to their patients. "Aims" at start of each chapter encapsulate chapter contents, and "Summaries" at end of each chapter highlight key points "Insights" and "definitions" throughout text expand and clarify content Self-test questions at end of each chapter and a detailed answer section at the end of the book facilitate learning. New chapter on orthovoltage generators and linear accelerators increases coverage of radiotherapy physics New appendix on PET scanning More comprehensive appendices on ultrasound and CT scanning Chapter on magnetism substantially revised to include MRI Text updated to reflect latest technical changes such as the development of digital techniques with the potential to make greater use of teleradiology About 40 new illustrations to accompany new text
