"Principles and Application of Radiological Physics, 6/e" provides comprehensive and easy-to-follow coverage of the principles and application of physics for both diagnostic and therapeutic radiography students. Regardless of changes in technology and clinical grading, the most important role of the radiographer remains unchanged - ensuring the production of high quality images and optimal treatment. These should be performed with the minimum of radiation hazard to patients, staff and others. An understanding of physics and the basics of radiographic technology is essential to do this effectively.
The book covers all the physics and mathematics required by undergraduate diagnostic and therapeutic radiography students, catering for those who do not have a mathematics qualification as well as for those who do. In this edition, there is a focus upon application of physics to reflect current teaching approaches. It has completely revised structure, leading from science principles to applications. It features new chapters on CT, MRI, ultrasound, PET, RNI, mammography and digital imaging, as well as electronic learning resources for students, hosted on Evolve.
