A well-known medical physicist and author, an interventional radiologist, and an emergency room physician with no special training in radiology have collaborated to write, in the language familiar to physicians, an introduction to the technology and clinical applications of medical imaging. It is intentionally brief and not overly detailed, intended to help clinicians with very little free time rapidly gain enough command of the critically important tools of their trade to be able to discuss them confidently with medical and technical colleagues; to explain the general ideas accurately to students, nurses, and technologists; and to describe them effectively to concerned patients and loved ones.

Chapter coverage includes:

"An excellent primer on medical imaging for all members of the medical profession...including non-radiological specialists. It is technically solid and filled with diagrams and clinical images illustrating important points, but it is also easily readable...So many outstanding chapters...The book uses little mathematics beyond algebra [and] presents complex ideas in very understandable terms."
