The CT Handbook:
Optimizing Protocols for Today's Feature Rich-Scanners
Author: Timothy P. Szczykutowicz
ISBN: Hardcover 978-0-944838-53-2
Sample Chapter 1 w/Table of Contents [pdf format]
The target audiences for this book are practicing radiologists, medical physicists, and technologists. The topics covered reflect the day-to-day needs of supporting a CT scanner from the perspective of a CT protocol optimization team.
A realization of Medical Physics 3.0 must involve an appreciation of the administrative, clinical, and technical sides of CT imaging. Since the author treats all of these facets in the book, it embodies the mission of Medical Physics 3.0 for CT.
The text doesn't shy away from comparing features from different vendors. Providing vendor-specific information allows one to gain real-world insight into MDCT scanner reconstruction and AEC operation.
Special Features Include:
- Over 300 example artifact images.
- Multiple chapter with guidance on setting up protocols.
Prepublication Special Includes a FREE Periodic Table with K-energies.

An Introduction to MRI for Medical Physicists and Engineers
Authors: Anthony Wolbarst and Nathan Yanasak
Price: $120.00Hardcover ISBN: 978-1-930524-20-0
eBook ISBN: 978-1-930524-58-3
Table of Contents
MRI reveals structural and anatomic details of soft tissues often much better than does CT. It can also exploit novel and unique contrast mechanisms at the biomolecular level to provide information on the physiologic and pathologic status of organs, muscles, nerve trunks, cartilage, etc.
This introduction to the science and technology of MRI has been written at the beginning graduate level primarily for professional medical physicists and engineers in training. Others, such as physicians with physical science backgrounds, may well also find it to be of interest.
Several more advanced topics-like Fourier analysis, k-space, and statistical distributions-are introduced as they are needed.
Richly illustrated in color, this book will help readers understand not just the basics of MRI, but how recent variations on its original implementation have produced the many alternative interpretations of data that have made MRI such a powerful diagnostic tool.
A Century of Radiation and Medical Physics
at New York's Memorial Hospital
Authors: Judith Groch, John Laughlin, Jean St. Germain, and Clifton Ling
ISBN: soft cover 978-0-944838-08-2
Since the early 1910s, the staff of Memorial Hospital in New York has been deeply involved in the development and application of radiation to treat cancer. This book chronicles the activities and contributions of the hospital's medical physics staff from 1910-2010. Memorial Hospital's medical physics pioneers included the likes of Gioacchino Failla and Edith Quimby, while the modern eras were led by John Laughlin and Clifton Ling.
