Bushberg, J. Anthony Seibert, Edwin M. Leidholdt, John M. BooneLippincott Williams & Wilkins, 28 Dec 2011 - Medical - 1048 pages 1 ReviewReviews aren't verified, but Google checks for and removes fake content when it's identifiedThis renowned work is derived from the authors' acclaimed national review course (Physics of Medical Imaging") at the University of California-Davis for radiology residents. The text is a guide to the fundamental principles of medical imaging physics, radiation protection and radiation biology, with complex topics presented in the clear and concise manner and style for which these authors are known. Coverage includes the production, characteristics and interactions of ionizing radiation used in medical imaging and the imaging modalities in which they are used, including radiography, mammography, fluoroscopy, computed tomography and nuclear medicine. Special attention is paid to optimizing patient dose in each of these modalities. Sections of the book address topics common to all forms of diagnostic imaging, including image quality and medical informatics as well as the non-ionizing medical imaging modalities of MRI and ultrasound. The basic science important to nuclear imaging, including the nature and production of radioactivity, internal dosimetry and radiation detection and measurement, are presented clearly and concisely. Current concepts in the fields of radiation biology and radiation protection relevant to medical imaging, and a number of helpful appendices complete this comprehensive textbook. The text is enhanced by numerous full color charts, tables, images and superb illustrations that reinforce central concepts. The book is ideal for medical imaging professionals, and teachers and students in medical physics and biomedical engineering. Radiology residents will find this text especially useful in bolstering their understanding of imaging physics and related topics prior to board exams. if (window['_OC_autoDir']) _OC_autoDir('search_form_input');Preview this book What people are saying - Write a reviewReviews aren't verified, but Google checks for and removes fake content when it's identifiedUser Review - Flag as inappropriateBOOK

BushbergLippincott Williams & Wilkins, 2002 - Medical - 933 pages 4 ReviewsReviews aren't verified, but Google checks for and removes fake content when it's identifiedDeveloped from the authors' highly successful annual imaging physics review course, this new Second Edition gives readers a clear, fundamental understanding of the theory and applications of physics in radiology, nuclear medicine, and radiobiology. The Essential Physics of Medical Imaging, Second Edition provides key coverage of the clinical implications of technical principles--making this book great for board review.


Widely regarded as the cornerstone text in the field, the successful series of editions continues to follow the tradition of a clear and comprehensive presentation of the physical principles and operational aspects of medical imaging. The Essential Physics of Medical Imaging, 4th Edition, is a coherent and thorough compendium of the fundamental principles of the physics, radiation protection, and radiation biology that underlie the practice and profession of medical imaging. Distinguished scientists and educators from the University of California, Davis, provide up-to-date, readable information on the production, characteristics, and interactions of non-ionizing and ionizing radiation, magnetic fields and ultrasound used in medical imaging and the imaging modalities in which they are used, including radiography, mammography, fluoroscopy, computed tomography, magnetic resonance, ultrasound, and nuclear medicine. This vibrant, full-color text is enhanced by more than 1,000 images, charts, and graphs, including hundreds of new illustrations. This text is a must-have resource for medical imaging professionals, radiology residents who are preparing for Core Exams, and teachers and students in medical physics and biomedical engineering.

Magnetic fields are used in everyday life and in specific occupational environments. Biomedical imaging has been an essential tool in daily medical diagnostics. For more than a century, biomedical imaging technologies have been developed to provide anatomical, functional and molecular information of internal organs. Optical imaging and ultrasound imaging have been two major modalities. Used in fundamental physics, optical imaging and ultrasound imaging have been explored by different research communities.


Syracuse University, Department of PhysicsSyracuse, NY 13244web.physics.syr.eduContact: Simon Catterall, [email protected], 315-443-5978The Department of Physics at Syracuse University offers programs leading to a Ph. D in Physics with an optional M.S. degree. Our faculty are engaged in research in experimental particle physics, theoretical particle physics and cosmology, experimental condensed matter and biological physics, theoretical condensed matter physics, computational physics, experimental astrophysics and cosmology, medium energy physics and experimental gravitational wave physics.We have approximately thirty faculty and 70 graduate students together with numerous postdoctoral fellows connected with different research groups. Our department has a diverse international flavor, featuring high caliber faculty, students and postdocs from all corners of the world. The graduate program is designed to provide a stimulating environment for students to work closely with distinguished faculty members on leading-edge research projects. Graduate student progress is carefully monitored. We realize that many students will go on to careers outside of academics and every effort is made to educate students about the wide variety of career paths available to physicists with advanced degrees. Our graduate alumni work all over the world in academic and industrial positions of all kinds.Through a combination of teaching assistantships, research assistantships, and University fellowships the department provides full tuition scholarships, stipends, and student medical insurance for essentially all graduate students. 041b061a72
