Book Description

Co-published by the European Medical Imaging Technology e-Encyclopaedia for Lifelong Learning (EMITEL) consortium and supported by the International Organization for Medical Physics (IOMP), Encyclopaedia of Medical Physics contains nearly 2,800 cross-referenced entries relating to medical physics and associated technologies. Split into two convenient volumes, this all-encompassing reference covers:

  • General terms
  • Diagnostic radiology
  • Nuclear medicine
  • Radiotherapy
  • Magnetic resonance imaging
  • Ultrasound imaging
  • Radiation protection

The encyclopaedia features the work of over 100 contributors who are specialists in their respective areas. It describes new and existing methods and equipment in medical physics at a level accessible to graduate and postgraduate students as well as medical specialists. Most articles include references, further reading, images, graphs, formulas, and examples.

Table of Contents

The articles in the Encyclopaedia will be listed alphabetically, but during the development stage these are grouped into 7 main groups:

  • Diagnostic Radiology
  • MR imaging
  • Nuclear Medicine
  • Radiation Protection
  • Radiotherapy
  • Ultrasound imaging
  • General

The number of articles per group varies, but in general these are between 400 and 600.
