Overview

Easy-to-read and engaging, this text offers a succinct overview of radiation biology and protection concepts. It teaches both why and how to protect yourself and patients from ionizing radiation. Emphasis is placed on integrating the theory of radiation protection as seen in radiobiology with radiation protection as it should be practiced in the clinical education setting. The text discusses cell structure, the direct and indirect effects of radiation at the cellular level, biological effects of radiation exposure, and protection practices for both patients and personnel. Current regulations and recommendations are in compliance with the educational requirements established by the American Society of Radiologic Technologists (ASRT).

Editorial Reviews

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Rochell Olive-Harmon, MS (Froedtert Hospital)
Description: This is the second edition of a book for radiology students that explains the biological effects of ionizing radiation and ways to help ensure safe use in diagnostic imaging. The previous edition was published in 2002.
Purpose: Students will use this book in their preparation for the American Registry of Radiologic Technologists certification exam, but it is also a reference for radiology students, practicing radiographers, radiology residents, and radiologists in the area of radiobiology and radiation protection.
Audience: Intended for radiologic technology students, the book includes applied and practical information. The author has been involved in radiography education for 30 years and served as a radiography program director.
Features: The book explains the biological effects of ionizing radiation and radiation protection, information that will help radiology students and practicing radiographers keep the harmful effects of ionizing radiation to a minimum.
Assessment: The excellent photos in this concise book add to its readability and help students understand the material.
