“Helping educational programs make digital radiography easy to understand.”

Textbooks and Workbooks

digital radiography processing booksThis new radiography CEU textbook provides just the right focus and scope for the practice of radiography in this digital age, covering four entire courses in a typical radiography program including imaging physics and equipment, principles of exposure, ten chapters devoted directly to digital imaging, and radiation biology and protection. The entire emphasis of foundational physics has been adjusted in order to properly support the specific information on digital imaging that will follow. The paradigm shift in imaging terminology is reflected by the careful phrasing of concepts, accurate descriptions and 713 clear illustrations throughout the book. Terminology and descriptions used have been adapted with great care to the digital environment, There is extensive coverage of the physics of digital image capture, digital processing techniques, and the practical applications of both CR and DR. Image display systems are brought up to date with the physics of LCD screens and of electronic images. In addition to review questions at the end of each chapter, to reinforce mathematical concepts for the student, dozens of practice exercises are strategically dispersed throughout the chapters, with answer keys provided in the appendix.

digital radiography processing booksThe Instructor Resources to accompany Radiography in the Digital Age (2nd Ed.) includes a bank of over 1500 multiple-choice questions for instructors’ use, covering at least four full courses in the typical radiography curriculum, and instructors are given written permission for standard copying purposes. Complete answer keys are provided for the multiple-choice question banks, the entire student workbook, and all chapter review questions in the textbook. The manual also includes 15 laboratory exercises specifically demonstrating the applications of CR equipment, and 20 other laboratory exercises for equipment and radiation protection, and for this edition, alternative film/screen labs have been added. Combined with the textbook, this valuable resource supports a state-of-the-art curriculum for radiography education in the digital age.

IMG_4373AAThe Student Workbook for Radiography in the Digital Age is specifically designed for in-classroom use with the series PowerPoint Slides for Radiography in the Digital Age. It is designed to provoke the student to participate in classroom instruction without excessive note-taking, allowing the student to concentrate on the lecture. The Workbook is organized throughout in a concise “fill-in-the-blank” format, focusing on key words to reinforce students’ retention of the material. The wording and sequencing of questions closely mirrors the PowerPoint Slide series for each course. An effective “note-taking” tool, it also doubles as a reinforcement tool for homework and individual study. For more information and to view the Table of Contents, click on the above image.

AdaptiveRadCvr2Adaptive Radiography with Trauma, Image Critique and Critical Thinking gives a fresh perspective on radiographic positioning and critiquing in the real world. The entire focus is on situations where near-ideal conditions do not apply.Thorough discussions on adapting beam angles, beam divergence and spatial relations in positioning lay a foundation that includes quantifiable, repeatable methods, with adjustments for trauma and mobile radiography, and for digital equipment. Real-life case studies are generously sprinkled throughout the chapters, and critical thinking challenges capstone each chapter. The final chapter addresses the elements and skills of critical thinking. This is NOT a routine positioning atlas, rather, it goes well beyond the routine, challenging students at a higher level throughout.

EvalRads2 Evaluating Radiographs takes a more generic approach to image critique, recommending anatomical criteria that can be used for several different studies where feasible, (such as using the centering of spinous processes to evaluate rotation not only for spines, but for other abdominal and torso procedures as well). With this approach, the student is not overwhelmed with disparate criteria for each and every view in a positioning atlas. Thorough coverage of all portions of the body is combined with a practical application approach to evaluating and correcting for errors in positioning.
