Overview

Develop the skills and knowledge to make informed decisions regarding technical factors and diagnostic imaging quality with this highly detailed, vibrantly illustrated, full-color resource. Updated with the latest advances in radiologic science, this new edition addresses a broad range of radiologic disciplines, providing a strong foundation in the study and practice of radiologic physics, imaging, radiobiology, radiation protection, and more. Unique learning tools strengthen your understanding of key concepts, and challenging review exercises help you prepare for success on the ARRT certification exam and in the workplace.

  • Quick-reference guides printed on colored end sheets provide easy access to frequently used formulas, conversion tables, abbreviations, and more.
  • Special Math Formulas boxes and Important Concepts boxes emphasize key chapter content.
  • A full-color design highlights important information and clarifies concepts.
  • Objectives, key terms, outlines, introductions, and summaries for every chapter help you organize material and identify vital information.
  • Challenge Questions at the end of each chapter test your understanding of terms, concepts, and formulas with a variety of definition exercises, short answer questions, and calculations.
  • Significant chapter updates help you ensure success on the ARRT exam and keep you current with the latest practices in mammography, interventional radiology, multislice spiral computed tomography, and radiation protection.
  • A new chapter on The Digital Image identifies the benefits and challenges of working with digital imaging and familiarizes you with technology you'll encounter inthe clinical setting.
  • A new Viewing the Digital Image chapter guides you through the most up-to-date viewing practices to ensure an accurate understanding.
  • An expanded glossary introduces important new terms common to today's practice settings.

This full-color textbook provides a solid presentation of radiologic science including the fundamentals of radiologic physics to prepare students for the ARRT certification exam. Also provided is a standard of knowledge from which practicing radiographers can make decisions about technical factors and diagnostic image quality in the work place. Key concepts are pulled highlighted in boxes, alerting students to need-to-know information. This edition includes new and expanded coverage of fluoroscopy, cardiovascular and interventional radiology, digital x-ray imaging, mammography, and multislice spiral CT.

Editorial Reviews

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Brent Colby, MS (MeritCare Medical Center)
Description: This sixth edition provides radiologic technologists and students of radiologic technology with a thorough, comprehensive introduction to the basic scientific principles of radiology.
Purpose: The author conveys a working knowledge of radiologic science to radiologic technologists and helps to prepare radiologic technology students for their certification examination. This significant task is accomplished in a single volume.
Audience: The primary audience of this book, radiologic technologists and students of radiologic technology, will find useful new concepts in this, the sixth edition. Topics are introduced and developed logically and clearly, typically within the context of clinical radiography. The book is self-contained.
Features: There are hundreds of excellent color photographs, diagrams, and graphs throughout the book. They are well done and clearly enhance the subject matter. The material is very current and includes a large section dedicated to special x-ray imaging. The references are similarly current. Useful tables contain conversions, units, formulas, and a glossary. A chapter summary and a set of review questions with answers appear at the end of each chapter.
Assessment: This is an excellent publication. It provides the primary audience with a single reference for current information in a logical and easy-to-read format. This edition continues to be as current as the technology within a modern radiology department. Every radiologic technologist and student of radiologic technology should own this book.
Joseph Castillo
The objective of this textbook is to introduce basic radiology sciences to radiography students, experienced radiographers, and radiography instructors. Its companion workbook, Radiologic Science Workbook and Laboratory ManualU, consists of supplementary problems, questions and exercises used in courses of radiologic physics, radiation biology, and radiation protection. This book describes the physics, biology, and protection that is involved in producing ionizing radiation and focuses on introducing the student to principles and fundamentals. The workbook is designed so that it can be used with or without the text. The text and the workbook are primarily aimed at the radiography student. They are also valuable reference tools for experienced radiographers and radiography instructors. This attractive text is extremely well-designed and well-organized. The illustrations, tables, charts, graphs, cartoons, and caricatures provide for quick and easy understanding of the concepts described text. The workbook's crossword puzzles are excellent motivational tools for students. This is a very well-organized and designed textbook. This text is definitely enhanced and complimented by its companion workbook. Both will be valuable educational tools for any radiography curriculum.
