FRCR Physics Notes: Medical imaging physics for the First FRCR examination


3rd Edition out now

Written by two UK Radiologists, these notes cover all aspects of radiology physics with plenty of easy-to-follow diagrams simplifying even the most complicated concepts.

This third edition is a significant step-up from previous editions with a new design, remastered illustrations, added content, corrections and removal of content no longer relevent to the FRCR physics exam.


FRCR Physics Notes has been assessed and critiqued by physicists from around the UK, and received extensive user feedback to ensure the most accurate, useful and up-to-date resource for radiology physics revision.

The book echos the content of the First FRCR Physics examination (sometimes called the 'Part 1' exam) and are also suitable for the RANZCR Applied Imaging Technology examination and other radiology physics exainations taken around the world.

Feedback from trainees

“Presentation of the concepts is extremely simplified using colorful diagrams at each step with concise and only useful stuff, not the redundant historical data. It’s the best resource to study physics for all radiologists"
“Thanks for such a concise and wonderful set of notes. I read it one day before the exams. I’ve watched numerous videos and read a few text books but your notes really helped me to understand the MRI concepts better, finally. Thank you"
“Physics made easy. Thank you"
“These are really really good notes"
“Very good and concise notes. Really helping me study. Thank you very much"
