Since its first edition in 1980, Essential Physics forRadiographers has earned an international reputation as a clear andstraightforward introduction to the physics of radiography. Now inits fourth edition, this book remains a core textbook for studentradiographers. The authors have retained the pragmatic approach of earliereditions and continue to target the book particularly at thosestudents who find physics a difficult subject to grasp. The fourthedition builds on the major revisions introduced in the thirdedition. The content has been updated to reflect recent advances inimaging technology. The chapter on Radiation Safety has beencompletely rewritten in the light of the latest changes in relevantlegislation, and a re-examination of the physical principlesunderpinning magnetic resonance imaging forms the basis of a newchapter. Worked examples and calculations again feature strongly,and the innovative and popular Maths Help File, guides readersgently through the mathematical steps and concepts involved. Thereference citations have been updated and now include Internetsources.

With every chapter revised and updated, Physics for Diagnostic Radiology, Third Edition continues to emphasise the importance of physics education as a critical component of radiology training. This bestselling text helps readers understand how various imaging techniques work, from planar analogue and digital radiology to computed tomography (CT), nuclear medicine, and positron emission tomography (PET) to ultrasound imaging and magnetic resonance imaging (MRI). New to the Third Edition Material on digital receptors Emphasis on the differences between analogue and digital images Coverage of multi-slice CT and three-dimensional resolution, dual energy applications, and cone beam CT Special radiographic techniques, including subtraction techniques and interventional radiology New chapter on PET, with discussion of multi-modality imaging (PET/CT) Additional material on radiation doses and risks to patients New chapter covering picture archiving and communication system (PACS), teleradiology, networks, archiving, and related factors A summary of the main teaching points at the beginning of each chapter After an introductory chapter on basic physics, the book follows the x-ray imaging process: production of x-rays, interaction with the patient, radiation measurement, the image receptor, the radiological image, and image quality assessment. It then covers more advanced x-ray techniques as well as imaging with radioactive materials. The text also focuses on radiobiology, risk and radiation protection, and imaging with non-ionising radiation. The final chapter discusses data handling in a modern, electronic radiology department.

Marie Sklodowska Curie, Trägerin des Nobelpreises für Physik und für Chemie, untersuchte die von Henri Becquerel beobachtete Strahlung von Uranverbindungen. Gemeinsam mit ihrem Mann Pierre entdeckte sie das Radium und das Polonium und prägte den Begriff „radioaktiv“. Ihre Forschungsergebnisse fasste sie in ihrer hier vorliegenden Dissertation zusammen, die innerhalb eines Jahres in fünf Sprachen übersetzt wurde. Sorgfältig bearbeiteter Nachdruck der deutschsprachigen Ausgabe aus dem Jahr 1904.

Since its initial publication in 1979, Essential Physics for Radiographers has earned an international reputation as a clear and straightforward introduction to the physics of radiography, and remains the core textbook for student radiographers. This third edition reflects the change from diploma to graduated radiography education. Nonetheless, the authors have retained the pragmatic approach of earlier editions and continue to provide a text for those students who find it difficult to grasp the subject of physics. The book has undergone major revisions and the content has been broadened to reflect the recent advances in imaging technology. New topics include magnetic resonance, lasers and alternating current theory. Fundamental physical concepts such as internal energy and post-Bohr atomic theory are more fully discussed in order to stimulate students to find out more information. Terminology has been revised to bring it in line with current educational and scientific practice, and decimal numbering of sections has been introduced. Information sources have been referenced and an extensive bibliography is provided. New diagrams are included, others have been redrawn with greater accuracy, and tables of physical data have been included. Worked examples and calculations feature strongly, and the innovative context-sensitive Maths Help File guides readers gently through the mathematical steps and concepts.
