Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

This book presents a comprehensive introduction to the principles and techniques of radiographic imaging. The physics principles that are the foundation of radiography are explained clearly, with numerous illustrations, examples and solved problems to aid comprehension. Chapters are organized into six units: Creating the Beam, Protecting Patients and Personnel, Creating the Image, Analyzing the Image, Comparing Exposure Systems, and Special Imaging Systems. Specialized imaging modalities, such as mammography, magnetic resonance imaging, and computed tomography and computed radiography, are explained in individual chapters.

Book News Annotation:

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.

Synopsis:

Presenting an introduction to radiographic imaging, this text explains the principles of physics that are the foundation of radiography. It uses numerous illustrations, examples and solved problems to aid understanding.

Synopsis:

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.
