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. Student Workbook helps you review important text information presented in the book. Companion online products provide you with an online supplement for the Sherer text. Updated NCRP and ICRP regulations provide the regulatory perspective you need for practice. New information on: Chernobyl Auger electrons Expanded discussions about CR and DR especially in respect to mAs. Expanded section on CT Evolve Student Resources including web-links.
