About Me

Science communication is important in today's technologically advanced society. A good part of the adult community is not science saavy and lacks the background to make sense of rapidly changing technology. My blog attempts to help by publishing articles of general interest in an easy to read and understand format without using mathematics. I also give free lectures in community events - you can arrange these by writing to me.

Medical Imaging - Introduction, X-Ray Imaging

Introduction to Physics in Medicine Course
The following slides were part of my lectures on Medical Imaging.  Glasgow University has a lovely and impressive campus.

























 Some Examples of X-Ray Imaging...












X-Ray Imaging does not provide a three dimensional view of the tissue.  Computer Aided Tomography (CT) allows us to look at the tissue in more detail.  This is discussed in the next lecture.
