Doody's Review ServiceReviewer: David J. Karr, RT (R)(Northwestern University Feinberg School of Medicine)
Description: This book is intended to be a learning and teaching aid in mathematics as applied to radiography. It is formatted into math subjects and their relationships to different subjects in radiography, practice problems, and quizzes at the end of most chapters.
Purpose: The purpose is to teach to the radiography student and radiographer the math principles and their relation to the field of radiography. The objectives are fully met.
Audience: The intended audience, and the appropriate one, is the radiography student and practicing radiographer.
Features: The book is appropriately illustrated with the math formulas covered in each section. The overall appearance is excellent. There is a clear table of contents. The quizzes at the end of each chapter and the research projects at the end of the book are extremely useful and, in my opinion, the only way to learn math.
Assessment: This book is an excellent review tool for math and its application to radiography. It can also be used as a review for the student who is about to take the radiology registry. The only clear way to learn mathematics in any field is to learn theory and practice that theory in an application related to your field. This book accomplishes just that. I would recommend that the intended audience purchase this book.
