Up-to-date comprehensive medical imaging physics notes for radiologists
Written by two UK Radiologists, these notes are concise and clearly organised covering all aspects of radiology physics with 100’s of beautiful diagrams to aid understanding and simplify even the most complicated concepts.
This superb package is suited to those sitting the first FRCR physics examination in the UK and covers the scope of the Royal College of Radiologists syllabus. Although aimed at UK radiology trainees, it is also suitable for international residents taking similar examinations, postgraduate medical physics students and radiographers. The notes provide an excellent overview for anyone interested in the physics of radiology or just refreshing their knowledge.
The notes cover all of radiology physics, including:
This third edition includes updates to reflect new legislation and many new illustrations, added sections, and removal of content no longer relevant to the FRCR physics exam. This edition has gone through strict critique and evaluation by physicists and other specialists to provide an accurate, understandable and up-to-date resource. The book summarises and pulls together content from the FRCR Physics Notes at Radiology Cafe and delivers it as a paperback or eBook for you to keep and read anytime.
There are 7 main chapters, which are further subdivided into 60 sub-chapters so topics are easy to find, and a comprehensive appendix and index have been included at the back of the book.
