about this item
This brand new book is designed to support undergraduate and graduate students taking their first modules in medical physics. It can be recommended as an overarching book to support students studying a number of modules (such as medical imaging and radiotherapy), as general introductory reading on a medical physics course, or as a dedicated book for a specific module on "Introduction to Medical Physics". The book covers the basic principles and applications of medical physics equipment and the role of a medical physicist in healthcare. The book is ideally suited for new teaching schemes such as Modernising Scientific Careers, and will be invaluable for all medical physics students worldwide.
