Summary

To meet the demands of practicing radiologic technologists, and students in training, Blackwell introduces the first volume of the Rad Tech's Guide Series. Rad Tech's Guide to Radiation Protection gets to the heart of what the modern technologist does by providing all of the information needed to understand basic radiobiology, the sources of radiation exposure, factors affecting dose to patients and personnel, and the most up-to-date dose management techniques. This on the sport reference is: Both a concise review for board preparation exams, as well as a handy reference guide for the busy rad tech. A guide to the most current standards for radiation protection with references to major relevant organizations and key reports. Pocket size -- take it anywhere!
