Radiation Protection In Diagnostic X-Ray Imaging Summary

Radiation Protection In Diagnostic X-Ray Imaging by Euclid Seeram

Radiation protection in diagnostic imaging is an integral part of the education and skill-set of radiologic technologists who play a significant role in the optimization of the radiation dose to the population. Radiation Protection in Diagnostic X-Ray Imaging provides students and clinicians with the knowledge and tools to protect not only the patient, but personnel and members of the public as well. This comprehensive text reviews the critical issues in radiologic protection and presents these key topics regarding medial physics in an accessible manner for clinicians, radiographers, and other health professionals. Radiation Protection in Diagnostic X-Ray Imaging covers the recent developments that have been introduced to address the increasing dose to the patient and new assessment tools for use in dose optimization studies. This accessible text includes an overview of the biological effects of radiation exposure, outlines the fundamental physical principles and technical aspects of radiation protection, as well as current regulatory and guidance recommendations for radiation protection in diagnostic imaging. Unique topics and coverage includes: radiation protection organizations, dose in digital radiography, dose in computed tomography, image quality assessment tools for dose optimization in x-ray imaging, diagnostic reference levels, and radiation protection through quality control. Radiation Protection in Diagnostic X-Ray Imaging meets the educational requirements (for entry to practice) of the following professional radiologic technology associations: the American Society of Radiologic Technologists (ASRT), the Canadian Association of Medical Radiation Technologists (CAMRT), the College of Radiographers in the United Kingdom, and radiography societies and associations in Asia, Australia, and Europe and Africa regions. Radiation Protection in Diagnostic X-Ray Imaging is an excellent choice for both diploma and degree level program education as well as for clinical reference. FEATURES Based on material from ASRT, ARRT and CAMRT, as well as Current Concepts of Radiation Protection Content is mapped to the ARRT Radiation Protection Examination Specifications and ASRT Radiation Protection Objectives In addition to topics prescribed by the ARRT for the certification examination, this book includes topics for advanced study INSTRUCTOR RESOURCES: ASRT and ARRT Guidelines, Sample Syllabus, Slides in PowerPoint format, Test Bank Each new print copy includes Navigate 2 Advantage Access that unlocks a comprehensive and interactive eBook, student practice activities and assessments, a full suite of instructor resources, and learning analytics reporting tools. Some electronic and eBook versions do not include access to Navigate 2 Advantage resources.

About Euclid Seeram

Dr. Euclid Seeram is currently an honorary senior lecturer, adjunct associate professor, and adjunct professor at the University of Sydney, Australia; Monash University, Australia; and Charles Sturt University, Australia; respectively. He has published over 55 papers in professional and peer review radiologic technology journals and has had 20 textbooks published to date, on Computed Tomography, Computers in Radiology, Radiographic Instrumentation, Digital Radiography, and Radiation Protection. Presently, he is on the editorial boards for Radiography, Biomedical Imaging and Intervention Journal, International Journal of Radiology and Medical Imaging, and the Journal of Allied Health. Furthermore, he is currently on the international advisory panel for the Journal of Medical Radiation Sciences, and an invited peer reviewer for the Journal of Medical Imaging and Radiation Sciences. His current research interests are focused on radiation dose optimization in CT and digital radiography imaging systems, and he has published several papers on these two topics. Patrick C. Brennan is currently Professor of Medical Imaging and Associate Dean, International at the Faculty of Health Sciences, University of Sydney. In the latter role and within the last three years he has forged productive inter-disciplinary research and teaching collaborations across Health Sciences with the leading institutions in China, SE Asia, Middle East and the Americas. He is also leader of the University of Sydney's Breast Cancer Special Interest Group, consisting of over 100 academic members. Since 2011, he has been (with Prof Warwick Lee) National Co-Director of BREAST. He has won 2 medals of excellence for teaching, won five major research awards and has acted as undergraduate, graduate and PhD examiner across Europe, Asia, Australia and the Americas. In 2009 he movedto the University of Sydneyfrom the School of Medicine in University Dublin where he was an Associate Professor and Head of Diagnostic Imaging . His new role was to establish an active research group focusing on medical imaging, whilst helping to transform the current teaching program. Since that time he has established a Medical Image Optimization and Perception Group (MIOPeG), which is now leading the world in medical imaging research, with publications in the highest ranking international imaging journals. Professor Brennan's research involves exploring novel technologies and techniques that enhance the detection of clinical indicators of disease, whilst minimizing risk to the patient. His research has involved most major imaging modalities with a particular focus on breast and chest imaging. In line with Government priorities, his research findings have translated into improved diagnosis and management of important disease states such as cancer. He is recognized as a global leader in clinical translation of medical imaging optimization and radiological perception Professor Brennan has published over 200 original papers, supervised over 40 PhD students and has been awarded over $12.5m in research funding.
