- Coherent coverage of imaging, radiation therapy, laser applications, and bio-compatible materials
- Contains exercises and examples at the end of every chapter
Aims and Scope
Starting with foundations in physiology, this two-volume textbook introduces students in science, medicine and engineering in a coherent way to the physics behind modern imaging and therapy techniques, as well as bio-compatible materials and their use in prosthetics. The first volume covers the physics of the body and imaging methods. The second volume introduces ionizing radiation and radiation based methods for diagnostics and therapeutics.
