Series in Physics and Engineering in Medicine and Biology

The Institute of Physics and Engineering in Medicine (IPEM) and IOP Publishing have come together to create a comprehensive collection of ebooks in medical physics and biomedical engineering.

Browse titles in the collection


Aimed at advanced-level students, researchers and practitioners, this series features text and reference books in medial physics, biomedical engineering and related subjects. Topics covered include clinical engineering, diagnostic radiology, informatics and computing, magnetic resonance imaging, nuclear medicine, physiological measurement, radiation protection, radiotherapy, rehabilitation engineering, ultrasound and non-ionising radiation.

A number of IPEM–IOP titles are published as part of the EUTEMPE Network Series for Medical Physics Experts. The EUTEMPE-Net modules are advanced comprehensive Medical Physics modules designed to help Medical Physicists attain Medical Physics Experts level in their specific Medical Physics speciality.
