Health Physics by Alexander Elliott; Andrew McCormick
Publication Date: 2001-07-05
A range of textbooks and teacher support materials for AS and A level Pre 2008 specification. Health Physics is a title in the Cambridge Advanced Sciences series pre 2008. It has been developed specifically for the new specifications for Advanced Level Physics for teaching from September 2000. Health Physics has been endorsed by OCR for use with the OCR Physics specification A. It provides full coverage of the Physics option module of the same name. In combination with other books in the series it provides full coverage of the Advanced Level specifications. Learning objectives are clearly defined, so that students know exactly what they need to learn. Self-assessment questions (with answers) and exam-style end-of-chapter exercises offer excellent opportunities for independent study. Chapter introductions and summaries provide the basis for structured revision. Student-friendly design make the science accessible to all.
History and physics of the CT scanner
A basic description of the mechanism of CT (computed tomography) scans for medical use in remote sensing.
Computed tomography (CT) scanning, also known as computerised axial tomography (CAT) scanning, is a diagnostic imaging procedure that uses X-rays in order to present cross-sectional images ("slices") of the body. Cross sections are reconstructed from the measurements of attenuation coefficients of X-ray beams in the volume of the object studied.
Journal of Nuclear Medical Technology
This article provides a review of the basic principles of CT within the context of the evolution of CT. Modern CT technology can be understood as a natural progression of improvements and innovations in response to both engineering problems and clinical requirements. Detailed discussions of multislice CT, CT image quality evaluation, and radiation doses in CT will be presented in upcoming articles in this series.
