Help your students master the basic principles and techniques of radiation safety! Radiation Protection in Medical Radiography, 9th Edition makes it easy for students to understand both basic and complex concepts in radiation protection, radiobiology, and radiation physics. Full-color coverage discusses the safe use of ionizing radiation in all imaging modalities, including the effects of radiation on humans at the cellular and systemic levels, regulatory and advisory limits for exposure to radiation, and the implementation of radiation safety practices for patients and personnel. Clear and concise, this text also prepares students for success on the ARRT certification exam and state licensing exams.

    • Clear and concise writing style covers key concepts in radiation protection, biology, and physics in a building-block approach progressing from basic to more complex.
    • Convenient, easy-to-use features make learning easier with chapter outlines and objectives, listing and highlighting of key terms, and bulleted summaries.
    • Full-color illustrations and photos depict important concepts, and tables make information easy to reference.
    • Timely coverage of radiation protection regulations addresses radiation awareness and education efforts across the globe.
    • Chapter summaries and review questions allow you to assess your comprehension and retention of the most important information, with answers on the Evolve companion website.
    • NEW! Updated content reflects the latest ARRT and ASRT curriculum guidelines.
    • NEW! Updated NCRP and ICRP content includes guidelines, regulations, and radiation quantities and units, explaining the effects of low-level ionizing radiation, demonstrating the link between radiation and cancer and other diseases, and providing the regulatory perspective needed for practice.
