Intermediate Physics for Medicine and Biology

In 1978, Russell Hobbie wrote the first edition of "Intermediate Physics for Medicine and Biology". It became a classic in the field, and I used it as a textbook when I was a graduate student. A few years ago, Russ was getting ready to prepare the 4th edition of his book, and he asked me to be a co-author. What an honor. We had a great time working on the book, and I think you will like the results. We added a new chapter on ultrasound, and increased the number of homework problems significantly.

You can find the website for the book at http://personalwebs.oakland.edu/~roth/hobbie.htm.

In the preface of our book, we write "We would appreciate receiving any corrections or suggestions for improving the book". Let me reiterate this. If you find any mistakes, please let us know.

Thanks for your interest in our book. Contact Russ or me if you have any questions.
