Editorial Reviews

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Dana J Lawrence, DC, MMedEd, MA (Palmer College of Chiropractic)
Description: This textbook is designed to provide a simplified understandable discussion of diagnostic imaging, not from the perspective of diagnosis but from the perspective of x-ray physics and technical knowledge. It covers topics ranging from x-ray equipment, x-ray production, and x-ray interaction with matter to radiation protection, film, screens and cassettes, film processing, radiographic techniques, CT and MRI, radiobiology, quality control, and site preparation. There are three appendixes: one provides a list of state and national groups involved in radiation regulation, one provides a list of companies that provide dosimetry equipment, and one provides a list of companies that provide supplies.
Purpose: The purpose is to provide the field practitioner and student basic and understandable information concerning radiation technology and physics.
Audience: The primary audience is both field practitioners and students who will use radiology in practice. Though the book was written by three chiropractors, its scope of coverage is important for any field that uses and teaches radiological procedures; thus, the text will find a home in the chiropractic profession, osteopathic profession, medical radiology, and in radiology tech courses.
Features: There are more than 200 high-quality illustrations, both line drawings and halftones of radiological images (both plain film and advanced imaging). Each chapter is preceded by a short outline of the material that also lists learning objectives. There are chapter quizzes, with answers provided at the end of the book.
Assessment: This book fills a gap that exists in the literature. It is easily readable, yet it covers a wide range of topics in great depth and is rather comprehensive in scope. The authors are very well known, and Dr. Yochum is certainly the leading radiologist within the chiropractic profession. There is a logical flow to the material. The chapters on technique and on quality control are particularly well done and quite comprehensive. These alone make the book a worthwhile purchase. I can think of few competing texts, at least from within the chiropractic profession, so this will be a must have purchase for both students and field practitioners. This is a very well done textbook that makes an important contribution to the literature.
