In the last 50 years, the field of medical physics has seen tremendous growth with the development of radiation therapy, nuclear medicine imaging, ultrasound, and nuclear magnetic resonance imaging. Yet despite these advances, an up-to-date reference that encompasses the entire area of medical physics does not exist. Fulfilling this need, the Handbook of Medical Physics provides essential information about all aspects of medical physics. Featuring internationally renowned contributors, the book discusses radiation therapy before delving into other imaging techniques, such as magnetic resonance imaging (MRI), optical imaging, and electrical impedance tomography. It also examines lasers in medicine, the physics involved in cellular and physiological processes, and medical electronics and instrumentation. Each chapter reviews the fundamental physics relevant to the topic at hand, offers detailed accounts of applications, and explores recent advances and future prospects.
