Basic Radiological Physics

by Kuppusamy Thayalan

The object of this book is to provide appropriate detail about the “Basic Radiological Physics”. The book “Basic Radiological Physics” is unique to serve as a single source of information addressing the entire spectrum of radiological sciences. The book “Basic Radiological Physics” may also be useful to the postgraduate or diploma students of radiology and imaging, nuclear medicine, and radiotherapy. Medical physics is a complicated subject, and with the constant advances in radiology with the emergence of latest technology, such as multi-detector computed tomography, digital radiography, 4D-ultrasonography, Doppler ultrasound, positron emission tomography-computed tomography and positron emission tomography-magnetic resonance imaging, it becomes imperative for any radiologist to be up to date with the developments of these technologies. In this regard, this is an excellent book that takes on the arduous task of simplifying complicated concepts, aided by extremely effective theory and suitable diagrams. The book has six sections and 30 chapters covering, general physics, radiation physics, physics of diagnostic radiology, physics of nuclear medicine, physics of radiotherapy and radiological health and safety. The book “Basic Radiological Physics” also has much-needed sections on radiotherapy, nuclear medicine and radiation safety and protection.
