4.0 out of 5 stars Essential Physics Review March 12, 2002
This text book is the most up to date and comprehensive text book available for radiology residents preparing for the ABR exam as of this date 3/12/2002. I have recommended this text for my most serious students and they have done quite well on the ABR exam. ( Most have scored in the > 90th percentile in the U.S.) For residents who want to just pass the exam, I recommend Sprawls text.

5.0 out of 5 stars Kudos for an excellent textbook. April 7, 2002
Opening the pages to this textbook is like stepping into a classroom. These authors obviously are not only experts in their respective subspecialties of medical physics, but they are also seasoned teachers of the art and science of this field of medicine. This is easily evidenced by the clarity of thought and completeness with which they treat each topic in this comprehensive, easily readable textbook. I highly recommend this textbook to all who have a need for such a clear, concise teaching of the many aspects of medical physics covered in this work.

5.0 out of 5 stars suitable for teaching medical physicist wannabes now April 21, 2002
I currently own the first edition of this book, and after flipping throug this new expanded 2nd edition, I'll be upgrading soon. The first book is an excellent text to use for teaching radiology residents the principles of medical imaging. Now, this second edition with greatly expanded content and pictures looks like it would be suitable for teaching a course to medical physics students. All sections appear to be significantly expanded with the additional detail needed for medical physicists. Still excellent for residents, but might go into a little more detail than they need.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent for radiology residents February 13, 2002
By FZ
I am reading The Essential Physics of Medical Imaging by J. Busherg for my upcoming Board Exam on Physics. I love it. It is very clear, easy to read and covers most of the topics. The book was loaned to me by my upper classman. Now, I'm buying the new edition.

3.0 out of 5 stars Medical physics made REAL easy October 29, 2008

A laymen's explaination to medical physics. Only basic knowledge required to start learning. An overall review though.

4.0 out of 5 stars Great balance between physics and medicine. December 27, 2012
Verified Purchase
As a future radiology resident, I bought this edition (older now) to skim through and see how I liked it. Three chapters in, I think this book has a great balance between the physics of medical imaging, while stating its message to a future clinician. It has enough depth to explain chemical and physical properties of imaging for any of those interested. It might be too in depth for radiology training (e.g. I highly doubt a majority of my future work will involve the content of this book), however for a future clinician wanting an in-depth description of how medical imaging is done, this book is perfect.

5.0 out of 5 stars Gotta Have it June 23, 2011
Verified Purchase
This book is the current physics cornerstone of many radiology residency programs. It is thorough in its explanations. This text is advanced in many of its concepts; thus, I recommend reading a second, less-intense radiologic physics text alongside it for further explanation of difficult topics.

5.0 out of 5 stars Intro to medical imaging October 11, 2013
Verified Purchase
This book can be used for an intro for medical imaging for any one who is interested in the field. The book is so thick so it better handled with care as it may get split parts (like mine!!) in overall the book talks very thoroughly on the topics on medical imaging.

3.0 out of 5 stars Layout very bad.
I don't like the layout and the flow of content in this book.
Equations should be presented more clearly, not squeezed into a really dense text. Read more

This book does a pretty good job of explaining the basic concepts. But it doesn't seem to offer a complete coverage of the topics covered in the book.
