Applications of Modern Physics in Medicine by Mark Strikman,Kevork Spartalian,Milton W. Cole

By Mark Strikman,Kevork Spartalian,Milton W. Cole

Many outstanding clinical applied sciences, diagnostic instruments, and remedy tools have emerged because of glossy physics discoveries within the final century—including X-rays, radiation remedy, laser surgical procedure, high-resolution ultrasound scans, automatic tomography (CT) scans, and magnetic resonance imaging. This undergraduate-level textbook describes the basic actual rules underlying those technological advances, emphasizing their purposes to the perform of recent medicine.

Intended for technological know-how and engineering scholars with three hundred and sixty five days of introductory physics historical past, this textbook provides the scientific functions of primary rules of physics to scholars who're contemplating careers in scientific physics, biophysics, drugs, or nuclear engineering. It additionally serves as an exceptional reference for complicated scholars, in addition to scientific and health and wellbeing researchers, practitioners, and technicians who're attracted to constructing the historical past required to appreciate the altering panorama of scientific technology. perform routines are integrated and strategies can be found individually in an instructor's manual.

  • Complete dialogue of the elemental actual ideas underlying glossy medicine
  • Accessible exploration of the physics encountered in a standard stopover at to a doctor
  • Practice routines are incorporated and options are supplied in a separate instructor’s handbook (available to professors)
  • A significant other web site (modernphysicsinmedicine.com) offers supplementary materials
