The medical applications of physics are typically not covered in introductory physics courses. This volume fills that gap by explaining the physical principles behind technologies such as surgical lasers or computed tomography (CT or CAT) scanners. Each chapter contains a short explanation of the scientific background, making this book highly accessible to those without an advanced knowledge of physics. It is intended for students in the field of medicine/health studies requiring an elementary background in physics. But Introduction to Physics in Modern Medicine can also serve as a non-mathematical introduction to applied physics for undergraduate physics students.
