Doody's Review ServiceReviewer: Susan Lura Sanson, MEd, RT (R)(QM)(Concordia University of Wisconsin)
Description: This is an introductory textbook covering the basic aspects of the radiologic technology profession. This is the fourth edition; the last edition was published in 1992.
Purpose: It is intended to serve as an introduction to the profession of radiologic technology.
Audience: The book is aimed at the new or prospective radiography student.
Features: The book is divided into three units: Becoming a Radiologic Technologist, Practicing the Profession, and Growing with the Profession. The units are divided into chapters, and each chapter includes objectives, an outline, a key terms list, and multiple choice review questions.
Assessment: This is a very nice introductory textbook. I applaud the authors for including a unit on the Joint Review Committee on Education in Radiologic Technology and a unit on continuing education requirements. It is written on a very basic level, but touches on all the important aspects of the profession.
