Physics has lot of applications in Medicine and Biology particularly in Physiology, radiology, Cardiology, Neurology and Audiology, etc. Most of the equipments used in the above specialties are employing the principles of Physics and its applications. Nursing personnel is an important category in the health care industry next to physicians. They are supposed to know about the equipments, usage and its maintenance. Hence, a proper education about the physics is very important and also the need of the hour. Hence, an attempt is made to write a complete textbook of “Bio-medical Physics for Nurses” to fulfil a long felt need in this area. The book has eleven chapters involving various principles and its applications. Many areas highlight the medical instruments and its practical applications. Also lots of clinical applications are incorporated wherever needed.
