Strength of the book is the writing style, with an approach that builds from the simple to the complex. Principles of Radiographic Imaging presents clear and concise information on radiographic contrast, density, detail and distortion, and ties those concepts together to present an overall picture of radiographic exposure. Radiographic Imaging is a required part of the Radiologic Technology curriculum, so any student who is studying to be a Radiologic Technologist, will need a book such as this to complete the curriculum.
Richard Carlton is an Associate Professor and former Director of Radiologic and Imaging Sciences at Grand Valley State University in Grand Rapids, Michigan. Previously, he taught Radiography at Arkansas State University, City College of San Francisco and Lima Technical College, and worked as a Clinical Coordinator at Wilbur Wright Comm...
