Summary

With an integrated presentation of digital radiography and conventional film-screen radiography, RADIOGRAPHIC IMAGING AND EXPOSURE, 3rd Edition provides comprehensive coverage of the fundamental principles of imaging you need to know to produce the highest-quality images and reduce the number of repeated radiographs. This practical text also includes Patient Protection Alerts, Practical Tips, Important Relationships, and Mathematical Solutions features throughout to provide helpful information every step of the way. An emphasis on practical information focuses on imaging and exposure topics essential to becoming a competent radiographer. UNIQUE! Integrated digital radiography coverage and a separate digital chapter include information on how to acquire, process, and display digital images. UNIQUE!
