Since its first edition in 1980, Essential Physics for Radiographers has earned an international reputation as a clear and straightforward introduction to the physics of radiography. Now in its fourth edition, this book remains a core textbook for student radiographers. The authors have retained the pragmatic approach of earlier editions and continue to target the book particularly at those students who find physics a difficult subject to grasp. The fourth edition builds on the major revisions introduced in the third edition. The content has been updated to reflect recent advances in imaging technology. The chapter on Radiation Safety has been completely rewritten in the light of the latest changes in relevant legislation, and a re-examination of the physical principles underpinning magnetic resonance imaging forms the basis of a new chapter. Worked examples and calculations again feature strongly, and the innovative and popular Maths Help File, guides readers gently through the mathematical steps and concepts involved. The reference citations have been updated and now include Internet sources.

Since its initial publication in 1979, Essential Physics for Radiographers has earned an international reputation as a clear and straightforward introduction to the physics of radiography, and remains the core textbook for student radiographers. This third edition reflects the change from diploma to graduated radiography education. Nonetheless, the authors have retained the pragmatic approach of earlier editions and continue to provide a text for those students who find it difficult to grasp the subject of physics. The book has undergone major revisions and the content has been broadened to reflect the recent advances in imaging technology. New topics include magnetic resonance, lasers and alternating current theory. Fundamental physical concepts such as internal energy and post-Bohr atomic theory are more fully discussed in order to stimulate students to find out more information. Terminology has been revised to bring it in line with current educational and scientific practice, and decimal numbering of sections has been introduced. Information sources have been referenced and an extensive bibliography is provided. New diagrams are included, others have been redrawn with greater accuracy, and tables of physical data have been included. Worked examples and calculations feature strongly, and the innovative context-sensitive Maths Help File guides readers gently through the mathematical steps and concepts.

"I really like the design and clinical focus of this book and believe that it will stimulate critical thinking among its transatlantic target audience" (Hazel Edwards, Senior Sonographer, Lister Hospital, Stevenage) Organized by clinical problem rather than by body system, Clinical Guide to Sonography enables you to quickly find information related to the symptom being reported by the patient. This unique format covers various pathologies that may be related to a patient's symptoms, and features illustrations and sonograms that demonstrate each pathology. The book is divided into five major sections: abdomen, obstetrics, gynecology, superficial structures, and a miscellaneous section to include pediatric and vascular clinical indications. Each chapter within those sections focuses on a clinical indication, and incorporates background information, a clinical scenario, discussions of pathologies and differential diagnoses, illustrations, sonograms, patient scenarios with multiple choice and case-based questions to ensure you have a solid understanding of the material. Symptom-based presentation makes it easy for beginning and experienced sonographers to quickly find information related to the patient's symptom. Summary tables of differential diagnoses and sonographic findings provide you with a brief overview of all chapter material for quick reference. Clinical scenarios at the beginning of each chapter help you learn to apply information to the clinical setting. Case studies and discussion questions give you the opportunity to enhance your critical-thinking skills and measure your comprehension of material. Over 900 ultrasound images correlated to the pathology illustrate what you'll encounter in the clinical setting. Glossary helps you define important terminology. New chapters provide you with more complete coverage of the pathology sonographers encounter in practice. New case studies with critical-thinking questions set up realistic situations for you to use as a frame of reference. 600 updated images produced by the latest technology keep you on the cutting-edge of sonography.
