Editorial Reviews

Gail Morgan
This textbook defines, explains, and instructs radiologic technologists in all aspects of basic pharmacology. The purpose is to educate radiologic personnel in basic pharmacology principles, therefore ensuring quality patient care. This edition is to be used as a teaching tool for radiologic students, but it would be worthwhile as a review text for all imaging professionals. It has a well defined table of contents. The illustrations are pertinent to the text and are helpful. The overall organization of topics is well done and easy to follow. The learning exercises in the back of each chapter encourage cognitive thinking and comprehension. The alert signs in each chapter emphasize various complications. This book covers the topic of pharmacology for the radiographer in depth. Each chapter is excellently divided into an easy to understand format. The explanations of various subjects along with the illustrations make this a worthwhile reference. The ""Did You Know"" portion, although not a necessity, helps to lighten what could be aotherwise dry subject matter. Only two areas could have been improved: highlighting the ""alert"" sections with more intensity because of their extreme importance; and including basic measurements and conversion charts for drug administration. Overall this text is very worthwhile and an asset for any patient care curriculum. Keeping abreast of current practices and information in pharmacology is a must for the radiographer of the future. This book will certainly help.
