The Essential Physics of Medical Imaging, Third Edition
by Jerrold T. Bushberg (Author), J. Anthony Seibert (Author), Edwin M. Leidholdt Jr. (Author), John M. Boone (Author)
This 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.
