"Physics for Medical Students" was designed to provide a semester course of physics to medical students. It covers basic physics of solid mechanics, electricity, fluids, heat, sound, optics, and atomic and nuclear physics. The physical concepts are medically oriented with the intention of relating physics to the students' everyday life. Each topic starts with a medical case, which intends to raise a question or introduce a medical diagnostic or therapeutic modality. The following text explains the physics concepts in relation to the medical case and eventually answers the question and describes the mechanism of operation on which the medical modality is based. Some of the medical applications covered in the book include skeletal traction, cardiac pacemakers, blood pressure, ultrasonography, radiography, magnetic resonance imaging, and nuclear medicine.

This book is intended as a textbook for a course in radiation physics in a- demic medical physics graduate programs. The book may also be of interest to the large number of professionals, not only physicists, who in their daily occupations deal with various aspects of medical physics and have a need to improve their understanding of radiation physics. Medical physics is a rapidly growing specialty of physics, concerned with the application of physics to medicine mainly, but not exclusively, in the - plication of ionizing radiation to diagnosis and treatment of human disease. In contrast to other physics specialties, such as nuclear physics, solid-state physics, and high-energy physics, studies of modern medical physics attract a much broader base of professionals including graduate students in me- cal physics, medical residents and technology students in radiation oncology and diagnostic imaging, students in biomedical engineering, and students in radiationsafetyandradiationdosimetryeducationalprograms.Theseprof- sionals have diverse background knowledge of physics and mathematics, but they all have a common desire to improve their knowledge of the physics that underlies the application of ionizing radiation in diagnosis and treatment of disease.

The medical applications of physics are not typically covered in introductory physics courses. Introduction to Physics in Modern Medicine fills that gap by explaining the physical principles behind technologies such as surgical lasers or computed tomography (CT or CAT) scanners. Each chapter includes a short explanation of the scientific background, making this book highly accessible to those without an advanced knowledge of physics. It is intended for medicine and health studies students who need an elementary background in physics, but it also serves well as a non-mathematical introduction to applied physics for undergraduate students in physics, engineering, and other disciplines.

Praise for the first edition: "[A] welcome addition to the reference materials necessary for the study of nurse anesthesia....The textbook is divided into logical, easy to use sections that cover all areas necessary for the practice of nurse anesthesia....This is a text that is easy to read and able to be incorporated into any nurse anesthesia chemistry and physics course. I would recommend this textbook to any program director." --Anthony Chipas, PhD, CRNA Division Director, Anesthesia for Nurses Program Medical University of South Carolina Nurse anesthesia students will welcome the second edition of this text designed for the combined course in chemistry and physics that is required for this program. It is written in a clear, conversational style to counteract the trepidation that often accompanies the study of chemistry and physics, and includes only those core scientific concepts that relate to clinical anesthesia application. Numerous illustrations demonstrate how the scientific concepts relate directly to their clinical application in anesthesia, and plentiful case studies exemplify and reinforce basic concepts. Review question at the end of each chapter facilitate self-assessment. This second edition offers numerous features that will further assist students with understanding and mastery of the material. These new features are the direct result of knowledge gained from on-line and traditional classroom teaching experiences. They include chapter summaries, additional questions and answers at the end of each chapter specific to nurse anesthesia, end-of-chapter summaries, and lists of formulas and constants discussed in the book. Fifteen videos vividly demonstrate the key principles of the chemistry and physics of nurse anesthesia. Corresponding to various sections of the book, they supplement and illustrate text content. Also available are revised PowerPoint slides for faculty use. The first edition of this popular text is currently being used by eight nurse anesthesia programs throughout the United States and many additional programs plan to adopt the second edition. New to the Second Edition: Emphasizes content in chemistry and physics that relates specifically to anesthesia, with a strong focus on gases Includes case studies to illustrate and reinforce knowledge Provides additional end-of-chapter problems focused on anesthesia Relates core scientific concepts to clinical anesthesia application Offers fifteen videos demonstrating key principles of the physics and chemistry of nurse anesthesia
