Overview

With a greater emphasis on drug administration both in the clinical setting and on national and state accrediting examinations, this text is very timely for students and technologists. The book is a combination text and workbook with broad application to all the imaging technologies, not just plain film radiography. It opens with introductory material and includes pharmacological nomenclature, drug classifications, pharmacokinetics, and drugs used in imaging, as well as comprehensive coverage of diagnostic contrast agents. In addition, drug administration procedures are presented along with emergency responses to drug reactions and legal and ethical aspects of medication administration.

* Combination text and workbook makes this sometimes difficult to comprehend information accessible to students and practitioners.
• Clearly written text and useful tables of drug pharmacodynamics, classification, and chemistry, especially radiopaque contrast media, assists readers in understanding the cellular and systemic effects of drugs.
• In-depth study of drug pharmacokinetics describes the manner in which drugs are absorbed, metabolized, distributed, and eliminated for a better understanding of drug doses and interactions.
• Detailed drug administration descriptions prepare students to perform or assist with procedures in the clinical environment.
• Complete coverage of emergency procedures prepares imaging technologists for treating adverse reactions following drug administration.
