I'm particularly impressed at the manner in which photon interaction process was explained and there various application to diagnostic radiology. But I really desire that the book has an electronic version for mobility and conviniency. Although its quite outdated for present day physics of medical imaging, but its still very important for fundamental principles of the subject matter, which is a major prerequisite for learning.
