Applications of Modern Physics in Medicine by Mark Strikman & Kevork Spartalian & Milton W. Cole

Many remarkable medical technologies, diagnostic tools, and treatment methods have emerged as a result of modern physics discoveries in the last century—including X-rays, radiation treatment, laser surgery, high-resolution ultrasound scans, computerized tomography (CT) scans, and magnetic resonance imaging. This undergraduate-level textbook describes the fundamental physical principles underlying these technological advances, emphasizing their applications to the practice of modern medicine.

Intended for science and engineering students with one year of introductory physics background, this textbook presents the medical applications of fundamental principles of physics to students who are considering careers in medical physics, biophysics, medicine, or nuclear engineering. It also serves as an excellent reference for advanced students, as well as medical and health researchers, practitioners, and technicians who are interested in developing the background required to understand the changing landscape of medical science. Practice exercises are included and solutions are available separately in an instructor's manual.

  • Complete discussion of the fundamental physical principles underlying modern medicine
  • Accessible exploration of the physics encountered in a typical visit to a doctor
  • Practice exercises are included and solutions are provided in a separate instructor's manual (available to professors)
  • A companion website ( presents supplementary materials
