Format: Hardcover
This text was a great accomplish for my intercalate BSc in medical physics. It had everything to (mostly) appropriate detail including that pesky MRI stuff about nuclear magnetic moment etc. The big bonus for me was the wit of the authors who managed to make the text accessible and enjoyable with their tone and turn of phrase- a rarety in physics texts i'm sure you'll agree.
Only problem is the price. Otherwise, a perfect introduction to the diagnostic side of Medical Physics.
PS. if you are looking for MRI specifically i recommend the text by Semelka and Monk (MRI in practice) it is perfect for someone looking to begin research in the field.

Format: Hardcover
This is one of the better textbooks i've encountered for teaching physics to radiology residents. Other books such as Bushberg are good, but it doesn't quite go into the same detail on some subjects like Christensen does. A new edition updating topics such as MRI, digital imaging and removing some of the chapters like xeroradiography would be nice. I'd also like to see a chapter or two on nuclear medicine imaging, but that might make the book a little too big.

Format: Hardcover
This most popular textbook for radiologist physics training courses (73% of market in 1989 AAPM survey) is excellent for the non-scientist who desires both technical and practical information. Needs to add sections on digital radiography, pulsed fluoroscopy, and CCD cameras, while reducing coverage of some fading technologies. This is one of the better textbooks I have used for any course.
