This book explains the principles, instrumentation, function, application and limitations of all radiological techniques – radiography, fluoroscopy, mammography, computed tomography, ultrasound and magnetic resonance imaging.

Beginning with an introduction to the fundamental concepts, the following chapters provide in depth coverage of each of the techniques from the perspective of a medical physicist.

Presented in an easy to read format, this book is an invaluable reference for postgraduate students in medical physics and radiology and candidates training for FRCR exams. It includes nearly 280 images, illustrations and tables to enhance learning.

Key points

  • Explains principles, instrumentation, function, application and limitations of all radiological techniques
  • Presented from perspective of medical physicists
  • Includes nearly 280 images, illustrations and tables
  • Highly useful for postgraduates in medical physics and radiology, and FRCR candidates
