Sherer's Radiation Protection in Medical Radiography provides vital information on radiation protection and biology in a clear, concise, and easy-to-understand manner. Building from basic to more complex concepts, this book also presents radiation physics, cell structure, effects of radiation on humans at the cellular and systemic levels, regulatory and advisory limits for human exposure to radiation, and the implementation of patient and personnel radiation protection practices.
-Historical perspectives explain the effects of low-level ionizing radiation and demonstrate the link between radiation and cancer and other diseases.
-Chapter outlines and objectives, highlighted key terms bulleted summaries, and review questions help you follow and understand the material.
-Full-color text and art programs enhance visual appeal, reinforce important elements, and hold your interest.
-Review questions with answers help you assess your comprehension.
