The first in a three-volume set exploring Problems and Solutions in Medical Physics, this volume explores common questions and their solutions in Diagnostic Imaging. This invaluable study guide should be used in conjunction with other key textbooks in the field to provide additional learning opportunities. It contains key imaging modalities, exploring X-ray, mammography, and fluoroscopy, in addition to computed tomography, magnetic resonance imaging, and ultrasonography. Each chapter provides examples, notes, and references for further reading to enhance understanding.
"There are very few problem-and-solution books available for Medical Physics courses and university teachers often have to hunt through several books to find suitable exercises to give to their students for practice or for assessment purposes - and often end up writing such items themselves - which is time consuming.
Problems and Solution in Medical Physics - Diagnostic Imaging Physics by Kwan Hoong Ng, Jeannie Hsiu Ding Wong, Geoffrey D. Clarke therefore fills an important void in Medical Physics education which many university teachers will very much appreciate. The book is very well-structured with chapters following the syllabus structure of established diagnostic imaging physics modules at most universities. The layout of the problems and solutions makes it easy for students to follow and makes the book an excellent resource for students to consolidate concepts learned during lectures and for exam revision. The answers and solutions to the problems and questions indicate the expected level of detail when responding to examination questions which will also help students learn to be succinct in their answers. The authors avoid complex or ambiguous language making the book very much suitable for an international audience."
