Description:

The new edition of "Physics for Medical Imaging" has been fully updated to reflect the latest advances in technology and legislation and the needs of today's radiology trainees. Invaluable reading, particularly for those sitting the primary and final examinations of the Royal College of Radiology, UK, the book will also be of value to radiographers and personnel interested in medical imaging. The concise text is also accompanied by clear line drawings and sample images to illustrate the principles discussed.

Review:

"Not only is it an essential text for the trainee radiologist, and any physics department participating in their teaching, but it is also a useful reference book for the trainee physicist as it provides an introductory overview ofdiagnostic imaging.""Lauren Tedder, SCOPE, March 08"

Author Biography:

Head of the Ionising Radiation Section, Bureau Inernational des Poids et Mesures, France, Dr Allisy-Roberts obtained a BSc in Physics from the University of Birnimgham in 1970. She went on to study for the MSc in Radiobiology, achieving the degree in 1971. Continuing at the same University, she obtained a PhD in Radiological Physics in 1980. Currently responsible for the international standards of radiation dosimetry and radioactivity measurements, she was previously Director of Medical Physics and Engineering, Southampton University Hospitals (1991-1994) and Consultant Physicist, Head of Regional Radiation Physics and Protection Services in the Department of Medical Physics at the Queen Elizabeth Medical Centre, Birmingham (1988-1990). She has served on many influential National and International committees dealing with radiation protection affairs and in 2002 was awarded the Founders' Prize by the Society for Radiological Protection.
