Medical Imaging Book from C.H.I.P.S.

Medical Imaging Physics
Fourth Edition
by William R. Hendee

Medical Imaging Physics covers all aspects of image formation in modern medical imaging modalities, from radiography, fluoroscopy, and computed tomography, to magnetic resonance imaging and ultrasound.

Medical Imaging Physics addresses the techniques and instrumentation used in the rapidly changing field of medical imaging.

Topics covered include:

  • Digital x-ray imaging
  • Doppler ultrasound
  • Helical CT scanning
  • Accumulation and analysis of nuclear data
  • Experimental radiobiology
  • Radiation protection and safety
  • and contains over 200 figures

Medical Imaging Physics provides the reader with the tools necessary to be comfortable with the physical principles, equipment, and procedures used in diagnostic imaging, as well as appreciate the capabilities and limitations of the technologies.
