|A Classic Text on Radiation Detection and
Measurement Now Updated and Expanded Building on the proven success of
this widely-used text, the Third Edition will provide you with a clear
understanding of the methods and instrumentation used in the detection
and measurement of ionizing radiation. It provides in-depth coverage of
the basic principles of radiation detection as well as illustrating
their application in a full set of modern instruments. In addition to a
complete description of well-established detection and spectroscopic
methods, many recently developed approaches are also explored. These
include extensive new discussions of semiconductor detectors with unique
properties, recently developed scintillation materials and
photomultiplier tubes, and several gas-filled detectors of new design.
Many other updates and additions have been made throughout the text and
two appendices have been added. Over 100 new figures and tables have
been included. Key Features of the Third Edition
* Every chapter has been updated with extensive addition of new
references to relevant articles in the scientific literature.
* A number of new detection techniques have been added, strengthening
the status of the text as the most comprehensive coverage of the topic
to be found in any single book.
* The writing style has maintained the readability that has attracted
favorable response from readers and reviewers of the earlier editions.
* The author uses his extensive research experience in radiation
measurements, nuclear instrumentation, and radiation imaging to provide
you with an invaluable resource.

|Written by a practicing, active radiobiologist,
the book brings together basic laboratory research and practical,
clinical applications. The single-authored, easy-to-read text and
informative illustrations ensure comprehension, and summaries at the end
of each chapter ease use.

|A straightforward presentation of the broad concepts underlying radiological physics and radiation dosimetry for the graduate-level student. Covers photon and neutron attenuation, radiation and charged particle equilibrium, interactions of photons and charged particles with matter, radiotherapy dosimetry, as well as photographic, calorimetric, chemical, and thermoluminescence dosimetry. Includes many new derivations, such as Kramers X-ray spectrum, as well as topics that have not been thoroughly analyzed in other texts, such as broad-beam attenuation and geometrics, and the reciprocity theorem. Subjects are layed out in a logical sequence, making the topics easier for students to follow. Supplemented with numerous diagrams and tables.

|This comprehensive publication covers all aspects
of image formation in modern medical imaging modalities, from
radiography, fluoroscopy, and computed tomography, to magnetic resonance
imaging and ultrasound. It addresses the techniques and instrumentation
used in the rapidly changing field of medical imaging. Now in its
fourth edition, this text provides the reader with the tools necessary
to be comfortable with the physical principles, equipment, and
procedures used in diagnostic imaging, as well as appreciate the
capabilities and limitations of the technologies.
All medical imaging, including x-ray imaging,
computed tomography, ultrasonography, nuclear medicine, positron
emission tomography, and magnetic resonance imaging, is grounded in
physics. Medical Imaging Physics presents the physics underlying medical
imaging in a comprehensive and comprehensible manner. This book is
helpful to physicians, physicists and engineers working in medical
imaging, but can be understood by any non-specialist with a college
background that includes science and engineering courses.

Although it follows the topical
outline that proved so successful in its earlier editions, the Fourth
Edition of this respected book encompasses all of the advances and
changes that have been made since last it was revised. It not only
presents new ideas and information, it shifts its emphases to accurately
reflect the inevitably changing perspectives in the field engendered by
progress in the understanding of radiological physics.
