This textbook is a complete course for radiologists studying for the FRCR part one exam, physicists and radiographers on specialised graduate courses in diagnostic radiology, or other appropriate undergraduate degrees. It follows the guidelines issued by the European Association of Radiology for training.It is a comprehensive, compact primer, appropriate to a teaching course some 50 hours in length. Its analytical approach deals in logical order with the wide range of imaging techniques available, and explains how to use imaging equipment.It includes the background physics necessary to understand the production of digitised images, nuclear medicine, and magnetic resonance imaging, It is assumed that students will be familiar with high school physics.It features extensive cross-referencing, practical analogies, further reading at the end of each chapter, exercises, exercises and a comprehensive selection of multiple choice questions (with answers) to test and reinforce student's understanding of the material presented.Major new features include: detailed discussion of patient dose; the use of digital radiography; image qual

Industry Reviews

"One of the most useful features is the amount of review material. A series of discussion questions are given at the end of each chapter and six to fourteen "multiple choice" questions per chapter are listed in an appendix, with an answer key for all questions and explanatory footnotes for some...On the whole, I found the material to be authoritative, comprehensive, and accurate. Doody Online Reviews "The book is well written and I recommend it not only to radiologists in training, but also to experienced radiologists and to X-ray technicians who would like to update their knowledge in the physics of diagnostic radiology" --Lars Jangland
