Overview

With comprehensive coverage of both digital radiography and conventional film-screen radiography, RADIOGRAPHIC IMAGING AND EXPOSURE, 4th Edition helps you master the fundamental principles of imaging, produce clear images, and reduce the number of repeat radiographs. This practical text also includes Important Relationship, Mathematical Application, and Patient Protection Alertfeatures throughout to provide helpful information every step of the way.

• Comprehensive coverage of both digital radiography and conventional film-screen radiography helps students and radiographers master the fundamental principles of imaging, produce clear images, and reduce the number of repeat radiographs.
• UNIQUE! Integrated digital radiography coverage includes information on how to acquire, process, and display digital images.
• UNIQUE!Patient Protection Alertshighlight the variables that impact patient exposure and how to control them.
• UNIQUE! Important Relationships boxes call attention to the fundamentals of radiographic imaging and exposure.
• UNIQUE! Mathematical Applications boxes familiarize you with the mathematical formulas needed in the clinical setting.

NEW! Updated information reflects the latest advances in digital imaging, fluoroscopy, and the X-ray beam with added x-ray emission graphs.

NEW! Image receptor and image acquisition coverage describes the construction of image receptors and how the latent (invisible) image is captured, and addresses the advantages and limitations of digital vs. conventional imaging processes.

NEW! Image Evaluation chapter allows you to practice applying what you’ve learned about image quality and exposure technique factors.

The book contains both black-and-white and two-color illustrations.

Editorial Reviews

Susan Lura Sanson
All the principles of radiographic image formation are covered in this fundamental textbook. The unique practice of using icons to indicate "important relationships, mathematical applications, practical tips and film critique" will help the reader to key in on essential information. This book will serve as an excellent introductory text for all standard topics included in a radiographic exposure class. The editor begins with an nice historical review on the discovery of x-rays, then covers the basics of x-ray production and image quality. A unit on scatter control leads into an image receptor section. The processor and sensitometry units area are very concise. Additional units are provided by contributors who technique charts, automatic exposure control, and computed radiography. The book is written for all radiography students and for technologists who may be re-entering the profession. The use of icons to indicate key concepts (important relationships, mathematical applications, practical applications, and film critique) will help the student radiographer focus on important information. The practical applications icon will assist the student in recognizing exposure concepts that can be applied in the clinical setting. There are many high quality illustrations and images, and there is a wonderful basic introduction on computed radiography. This book is unlike Fodor's The Art and Science of Medical Radiography (Mosby, 1993). While the x-ray tube and x-ray generation at the target are covered, the x-ray generator itself is not. Unlike Wallace's Radiographic Exposure: Principles and Practice (FA Davis, 1995), an activities section does not appear inthis text; however, a set of review questions is provided at the end of each unit. Still, the practical tips icons will help students to apply knowledge in the clinical setting. When comparing illustrations, moreover, this book is outstanding -- a fresh look at an old subject along with a great introduction on computed radiography. I would highly recommend adoption of this textbook for an introductory course in radiographic (technique) exposure and as an excellent addition to the school library.
