High-yield, image-rich study guide presents complex physics concepts in reader-friendly format
Physics is a key component of the American Board of Radiology core and certifying exams, therefore it is an essential area of study for radiology residents and young radiologists prepping for these exams. Radiology residents gather their medical physics knowledge from many sources, often beginning with their first encounter of a radiologic image. As such, Radiologic Physics Taught Through Cases by Jonathon A. Nye and esteemed contributors incorporates an image-rich, case-based layout conducive to learning challenging physics concepts.
The book encompasses physical diagnostic radiology scenarios commonly encountered during residency in a format that fosters learning and is perfect for board preparation. Seven technology-specific chapters cover fluoroscopy, mammography, computed tomography, magnetic resonance imaging, nuclear medicine, ultrasound imaging, and image processing. Each chapter features 10 succinct case-based topics intended to quickly convey information.
