About this book

This is the second edition of a well-received book that enriches the understanding of radiographers and radiologic technologists across the globe, and is designed to meet the needs of courses (units) on radiographic imaging equipment, procedures, production, and exposure. The book also serves as a supplement for courses that address digital imaging techniques, such as radiologic physics, radiographic equipment and quality control. 

 In a broader sense, the purpose of the book is to meet readers’ needs in connection with the change from film-based imaging to film-less or digital imaging; today, all radiographic imaging worldwide is based on digital imaging technologies. 

The book covers a wide range of topics to address the needs of members of various professional radiologic technology associations, such as the American Society of Radiologic Technologists, the Canadian Association of Medical Radiation Technologists, the College of Radiographers in the UK, and the Australian and New Zealand Societies for Radiographers.

About the authors

Dr Euclid Seeram is currently an honorary senior lecturer at the Faculty of Health Sciences, University of Sydney; Adjunct Associate Professor of Medical Imaging and Radiation Sciences at Monash University, Australia; Adjunct Professor at the Faculty of Science, Charles Sturt University, Australia; and Adjunct Associate Professor of Medical Radiation Sciences at the University of Canberra.

 

His current research interests are focused on radiation dose optimization in CT and digital radiography imaging systems, topics on which he has published several papers in professional and peer-reviewed radiologic technology journals. He has published numerous books on CT, computers in radiology, radiographic instrumentation, digital radiography, and radiation protection. Presently, he serves on the editorial boards for Biomedical Imaging and Intervention Journal, Radiography, International Journal of Radiology and Medical Imaging, Radiology Open Journal, and the Journal of Allied Health. He is on the international advisory panel for the Journal of Medical Radiation Sciences, and serves as an invited peer reviewer for the Journal of Medical Imaging and Radiation Sciences
