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

Die Magnetresonanztomographie (MRT) hat sich zur fÃ1⁄4hrenden Schnittbildmethode entwickelt. Die kontinuierlichen technischen Neuerungen haben die Anwendungsbereiche deutlich erweitert. Die MRT wird heute nicht mehr nur im ZNS und muskuloskelettalen System, sondern auch im Abdomen, im Becken, in der Mammadiagnostik, der Herzbildgebung und fÃ1⁄4r Gefäßuntersuchungen eingesetzt. Das vorliegende Buch bietet praktische Anleitungen fÃ1⁄4r effiziente und kosteneffektive MRT-Untersuchungen in der täglichen Routine. Die zweite, vollständig Ã1⁄4berarbeitete Auflage berÃ1⁄4cksichtigt neue Techniken und enthält viele neue Abbildungen. Ziel des Buches ist, zu einem besseren praktischen Verständnis der MRT zu fÃ1⁄4hren und damit zur Optimierung der Arbeitsprozesse an MR-Anlagen beizutragen. Neue Techniken, Pulssequenzen und Protokolle sollen bei der Lösung klinischer Fragestellungen helfen. Das Buch erleichtert Anfängern den Einstieg in die MRT und hilft Fortgeschrittenen, ihr Wissen zu aktualisieren.

An Introduction to Radiation Protection is a highly readable account of the nature of the hazards presented by ionizing radiation and the methods of protection for those new to the field and for the non-specialist. The sixth edition of this established text takes readers through the general background of the subject, the technical principles underlying the control of radiation hazards, radiation detection and measurement, and the biological effects of radiation. These principles are followed by a consideration of radiation protection issues in the nuclear industry, the non-nuclear sector, and the medical field. Further specialised topics include risk assessment, waste management and decommissioning, radiological incidents and emergencies, relevant legislation, and organizational issues. Supplemented by clear diagrams and photographs, summary sections, and revision questions, the book is suitable for the beginner as well as the more advanced radiation practitioner. It remains an ideal primer for those working in the nuclear industry, nuclear medicine technicians, radiographers and medical physics technicians, health and safety executives and occupational health professionals. It is also an invaluable companion for anyone training or undertaking a course in radiation protection.
