Medical Physics By Dr. Hasan Maridi

The book is written for students in medical colleges. It contains the most important physical concepts and their applications in medicine and life. It is supported by solved examples in most of the topics. It was written in the form of PowerPoint slides to make it look smooth for students and contains suitable spaces for writing and adding notes to it by students to help them in retrieval and studying. It was written from several references that you will find on the second page.

This is the third version. I will be happy to accept any comments on it from the teachers and students.

The right to print the book and use it or use some of its parts is guaranteed to everyone without reference to me, and I hope that our students in medical colleges will benefit from it.
