Introduction to Physics in Modern Medicine

This  book turned out to be different to my expectations. It is not a rigid textbook (like Essential Physics of Medical Imaging)It is written informally but provides a lot of detail to increase understanding of  common medical investigative and therapeutic techniques.

The book, in addition to the underlying physics, provides background context for the discussion as well as some rationale for use with citations of relevant clinical and epidemiological data. Chapters end with the frontiers of current technology and possible future directions. I appreciated this, however, thought it was less considered than the effort in explaining the physics.

I think (as the author writes in the preface, and the title  states) this is an introduction to physics in modern medicine. I enjoyed it.
