Christensen's Physics of Diagnostic Radiology
Lippincott Williams & Wilkins, 1990 - Medical - 522 pages
The Fourth Edition of this text provides a clear understanding of the physics principles essential to getting maximum diagnostic value from the full range of current and emerging imaging technologies. Updated material added in areas such as x-ray generators (solid-state devices), xerography (liquid toner), CT scanners (fast-imaging technology) and ultrasound (color Doppler).

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 Although its quite outdated for present day physics of medical imaging, but its still very important for fundamental principles of the subject matter, which is a major prerequisite for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.
