4.0 out of 5 stars Radiography Students!! 24 Jun 2011
I'm just reaching the end of my first year as a radiography student and have found that this book was quite useful. The information is very broad - which is a good thing in this case. There is information available on legislation (Which Universities are massive on when it comes to referencing within an essay), techniques, procedures and ethics regarding patient care.

It is structured well so that every aspect is easy to find and each topic is described in enough detail so that new information is still understandable. I wouldn't say that this textbook would be that useful for a second or third year student unless they are in need of legislation and ethics information as the detail is a little limited.

I found myself using this book in all of my assignments this year and I imagine I will do the same next year when new topics are introduced. It really depends on how much background knowledge you already have - if you have none or only a little this is ideal. I can imagine for those people already working within a radiology department will have alot of the knowledge already. Even so, referencing what you know is essential so this book is quite integral to a radiography student.

I would recommend it without question, it has been more than useful for me.

4.0 out of 5 stars Intro into Radiography 22 Nov 2010
By Chris
This is a very interesting book if you have no previous knowledge of radiography. I bought it as I was interested in learning more about the subject to see if it was a possible career path for me. The book gives a good insight into the subject including how x-rays work, the legalities and ethics included, the different subject areas etc etc.

The book is black and white print but the diagrams, photos and captions make this book for a bite size introduction and will give the reader a clearer idea of what they'll be letting themselves in for.

5.0 out of 5 stars Bought For Daughter, 9 Dec 2012
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I bought this for my daughter who has just started a course at university to be a Radiographer. This was one of the prescribed books, and bank ob Mum and dad was called on by the cash strapped student.:) I know she has used it a lot and finds it invaluable, it's one of the books that is constantly referred to.
So, while i have had no pleasure from my purchase, it has proved to be a good buy.

Excellent book. Gives a good insight into the work of a radiographer. The book briefly covers every aspect of the profession, including appropriate dress, appearance, patient interaction, human anatomy, diseases and all the imaging machinery. Good book if you are interested in taking up this profession.
