by Hariqbal Singh, Amol Sasane, Roshan Lodha

The book titled “Textbook of RADIOLOGY: Physics” endow with succinct impression of the field of radiology physics and its application in everyday practice. Physics is methodical study of matter and energy and their interaction with each other and it deals with matter on scales that varies from sub-atomic elements to stars and galaxies. Textbook of radiology physics is advanced specially for students of radiology who are preparing for examination and it edifies the essential physics of analytical radiology and its relevance in recent medicine. This book is configured in such a way that the students are ascertained to different radiology physics aspects and can prepare well for examination. Augmented with radiological images and illustrations, each chapter elucidates the principles, function, application and inadequacies of the radiological practice. Book is inevitable for radiology residents, radiologists and technical staff of any imaging institute and is also intended for medical colleges, institutional and departmental libraries. This book contains twenty five chapters which begin with prologue to fundamental concepts and the basics of radiation from chapter electromagnetic radiations, followed by chapters like production of X-ray, X-ray interactions, grids, collimators, filters, X-ray films, fluoroscopic imaging, image quality, radiation hazards and protection, ultrasound physics, Doppler, recent advances in ultrasound, mammography, computed tomography, magnetic resonance imaging, computed tomography contrast media, artifacts, computed radiography and digital radiography, positron emission tomography-computed tomography, magnetic resonance-positron emission tomography, single-photon emission computed tomography, picture archiving and communication system, planning of radiology department, molecular imaging, and nuclear medicine physics.
