Overview

Radiation Biology and Protection is designed to teach radiologic sciences students how and why they can protect their patients and themselves from harmful radiation. The theory of radiation biology and protection is examined in conjunction with how protection procedures are applied in the clinical setting. The book is clearly written in an easy to understand narrative and illustrated with color photographs to facilitate comprehension. This text provides current regulations and recommendations for the radiologic sciences and complies with the educational requirements required of practicing radiologists by the American Society of Radiologic Technologists (ASRT). Ideal for students enrolled in radiology courses, or as a review by graduate radiographers, radiology residents and practicing radiologists.

  • Detailed chapter topic outlines, chapter overviews, learning objectives, chapter summaries, appendices, and a glossary of terms reinforce important concepts.
