Overview

Strength of the book is the writing style, with an approach that builds from the simple to the complex. Principles of Radiographic Imaging presents clear and concise information on radiographic contrast, density, detail and distortion, and ties those concepts together to present an overall picture of radiographic exposure. Radiographic Imaging is a required part of the Radiologic Technology curriculum, so any student who is studying to be a Radiologic Technologist, will need a book such as this to complete the curriculum.

The book contains black-and-white illustrations.

Editorial Reviews

Gregory L. Spicer
This second edition updates some images and changes in CT, MR, and computed radiography, while remaining solid in the basics of radiography. This is the best technique book on the market for students. Practicing radiographers would be well served by the book, but, by and large, they are not readers. The book is focused at radiologic technology students and practicing radiographers. Carlton and Adler are recognized authorities in technique since the first edition appeared in 1992. They are very credible. All aspects of the text are quality. The information is presented in such a manner as to make it useful for the student and the practicing radiographer. Over time, this will become the standard for technique books, like Cahoon was in the 60s and 70s. I believe this book is the best on the market. Bushong's Physics book is its big competition, and in programs that are trying to save money on textbooks, Bushong is preferred because it has something on every technique subject as well as physics. Carlton/Adler is superior because of its thoroughness and quality of presentation. I use it for my students, and highly recommend it. By the way, the workbook is particularly helpful to educators.

New edition of a text that introduces the principles and techniques of radiographic imaging. Carlton (Arkansas State U.) and Adler (Indiana U. Northwest) explain the physics principals that are the foundation of radiography together with numerous illustrations, examples, and solved problems. The 45 chapters discuss creating the beam, protecting patients and personnel, creating and analyzing the image, comparing exposure systems, and special imaging systems. Individual chapters cover specialized imaging modalities such as mammography, vascular imaging, magnetic resonance imaging, digital radiography, and computed tomography. Annotation c.
