Description

Radiation has been used in medicine since from the discovery of X-rays in 1895 by the German physicist WC Roentgen. Over the period its application has grown enormously and it is used today in the form of radiography fluoroscopy mammography and computed tomography. Nonradiation tools are also competing in medicine in the form of ultrasound and magnetic resonance imaging. These tools not only provide early differential diagnosis of the disease but also improve the accuracy of clinical diagnosis. The uniqueness of the above tools is that they all work on the basis of physics principle. Understanding the physics of the above instruments is very much essential for those connected with radiological sciences. It helps not only the education but also the equipment selection its optimal use maintenance and safety. Hence an attempt is made to explain the physical principle instrumentation function its application and limitations in the form of a single book. Attempt is also made to incorporate nuclear imaging and radiological safety in the same book. Large numbers of figures and tables are incorporated wherever it is necessary for better understanding of the concept.
