Reviews

From the book reviews:

“A most welcome addition to the body of literature about radiologic quality and safety that is both comprehensive and timely. … this volume contains large sections that would be relevant and useful for a wide spectrum of medical professionals ranging from radiologists as policy makers, quality safety officers, or administrators to radiation physicists, allied health professionals, or institutional administrators involved in radiation and medical imaging utilization policy, whether their responsibilities are confined to a single imaging center or extend internationally.” (Gerald M. Legiehn, Radiology, Vol. 273 (2), November, 2014)

“This edited book addresses fundamental radiological safety and quality principles in medical imaging. … Several groups should find this book educational, including students, experienced clinical leaders, and stakeholders in radiology, radiography, medical physics, health physics, patient safety, administration, regulatory authorities, professional organizations and agencies. The book is superbly edited with chapters written as a unique collaboration of experts from leading international agencies and professional organizations, appropriately qualified for the topics.” (Lawrence T. Dauer, Doody’s Book Reviews, April, 2014)
