Medical Physics Pub., Jan 1, 2001 - Medical - 354 pages
This book presents the proceedings of the American Association of Physicists in Medicine 2001 Summer School, held at the University of Washington in Seattle, WA, June 2001. These proceedings provide an overview of accreditation programs available for medical physicists and some programs still in development, illustrate the physical principles related to medical imaging, and explain what is required to provide acceptable images and a suitable program in order to become accredited. Accreditation requirements in radiation oncology are also described. There is no subject index. Annotation copyrighted by Book News, Inc., Portland, OR.
