A handbook of physics for radiologists and radiographers
This text/reference provides practicing radiologists and those in training with a simplified explanation of modern physics. Beginning with coverage of basic physical principles (i.e. measurement, magnetism, heat, electricity, radioactivity, etc.) it goes on to apply these theories to specific radiological techniques and equipment. Uses word forms and analogies instead of complex mathematical formulas and covers the most recent imaging modalities.
