Book Description

Written by a senior UK radiology registrar, this book provides concise yet comprehensive explanations of the full spectrum of medical imaging physics. Designed by a radiologist, for radiologists, it will help you prepare yourself for the physics component of the Royal College of Radiologists' First FRCR examination. The book is written in plain English and does not assume higher knowledge of physics or mathematics.

The book is divided into 11 chapters, mirroring the RCR physics curriculum and covers almost 90 topics ranging from the basics of radioactivity to complex magnetic resonance concepts. Written specifically for the Kindle, there are over 75 clear illustrations.

The chapter listing is as follows:

1. Matter & radiation
2. Ionising radiation dose
3. Radiography
4. Fluoroscopy
5. Safety
6. Radioactivity
7. Radionuclide imaging
8. Radiation protection framework
9. Computed Tomography
10. Ultrasound
11. Magnetic Resonance Imaging

5.0 out of 5 stars Would have seriously struggled without this 18 Jan. 2014
As someone who is not the brightest button in the box, I have always struggled with physics and FRCR Part 1 was no exception.

Having not got past page 15 of Farr's in 3 months, these notes were an absolute god send and whilst I still did a bit of extra reading around these notes, they made the impossible seem possible by managing to reduce a very extensive and dull exam curriculum into a concise, no-nonsense set of notes, with clear and simple pictures and explanations.

I've still no idea how I passed the FRCR physics exam first time, but I'm very glad I did, and I'm sure these notes had a large part to play in it, thank-you Dr. Pettet!

5.0 out of 5 stars A fantastic companion for FRCR part 1 16 Jan. 2014
By JamesW
This is a fantastic revision guide for the FRCR part 1 physics module.
The book is very logically presented and contains an appropriate level of detail required for the part 1 physics exam.
It is presented in a very clear and concise manor and manages to explain some quite complicated physical principles in a very manageable way.

The book of choice for the FRCR part 1 physics exam by Far!!

5.0 out of 5 stars A much needed book! 14 Jan. 2014
By Adam Y
Preparing for the FRCR Part 1 Physics exam can be a daunting experience when you've not studied Physics since GCSE. Thankfully this book distills down what is required into compact, well-explained chunks - hooray!

A good little revision book that I would recommend to anyone sitting the exam!

5.0 out of 5 stars A life-saving revision tool 14 Jan. 2014
By Will
'A Radiologists notes on Physics' has been life-saving in the run up to RCR Part.1 physics exam. The core textbook, Farr's physics for medical imaging, is a tough read with it's dry, extensive content and can be difficult to follow in parts.

Dr.Pettet's notes make much lighter reading, with summaries of the key points in simple, logical steps.

If you're not a natural physicist like most trainees and you're struggling with the physics revision - this little e-book is just the ticket
