    This three-volume set explores Problems and Solutions in Medical Physics. These invaluable study guides should be used in conjunction with other key textbooks in the field to provide additional learning opportunities.

    Volume one explores Diagnostic Imaging Physics and contains problems and solutions on key imaging modalities, exploring X-ray, mammography, and fluoroscopy, in addition to computed tomography, magnetic resonance imaging, and ultrasonography.

    Volume two explores Nuclear Medicine and contains problems and solutions on radioactivity and nuclear transformation, radionuclide production and radiopharmaceuticals, non-imaging detectors and counters, instrumentation for gamma imaging, SPECT and PET/CT, imaging techniques, radionuclide therapy, internal radiation dosimetry, and quality control and radiation protection in nuclear medicine.

    Volume three explores Radiotherapy and contains problems and solutions on external beam therapy equipment, photon beam physics, radiation dosimetry, treatment planning for external beam radiotherapy, and external beam commissioning and quality assurance.

    Each chapter provides examples, notes, and references for further reading to enhance understanding.
