1 of 1 people found the following review helpful By M. Moylan on 30 Oct 2009
Format: Hardcover
This book arrived on the last day of the time it was said to take. Its condition was good and the description given was accurate. As a physics book though, it's quite hard to read with big long blocks of text. If you are studying for a radiography degree I would recommend you get something more student friendly. Having said that it was really good value, as I know to buy a new or upgraded edition is very expensive in comparison. Hope u found this helpful.

This book is amazing and so clear to understand. The pictures and diagrams are very very helpful. It has helped me with the start of my degree and is well written and explained. Delivery was very quick and efficient :-) I don't know where I would be without this book for my first assignment and many more I'm sure!

Radiologic Sciences for the Technologist 6 April 2000
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
This book has an excellent review for basic math, scientific notation and basic concepts of radiation science. The difficulty that I have experienced with this book is the numerous mistakes(often pointed out by the students) as well as the minimal explanations to the problems presented. This should not be an exclusive text for radiology students but is a good supplemental text because it does have a good accompanying workbook.

Good flow but many mistakes 6 Jan 2009
By S. Ferenc - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
I just finished a college course in Radiologic Physics using this book. Each chapter's information and formulas build upon the previous chapter, and I found the flow of information easy to follow. The examples problems were helpful (sometimes) to make the author's point. But, thats where the problem lies with this book. The example problems had too many mathmatical mistakes or misprints. In one chapter the author kept switching the variable "L" with "1" within the same problem. Most other problems were either missing steps or the math was just wrong. I would spend twenty minutes on an example trying to figure out how they got an answer and finally would either just move on or come up with my own answer and verify it with the instructor the next class. For a book in its 9th Ed., someone should have caught these mistakes long ago. Each chapter had at least two, to as many as six mistakes. While there is good information in this book and great diagrams and charts as to how X-rays are produced, the example problems make this book average instead of good. (Definitely buy the workbook if you purchase this book).

RIDDLED with MISTAKES 5 Oct 2009
By johannes - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
While it is a good book, it needs considerable review by its author and editors because it is riddled with mathematical errors and mistakes. There are several areas in the book that contradict other areas in the book.

too much outdated information 25 Dec 2011
By R. Biggs - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
Ok text book, but needs an update in the worst way. Too much film screen and not enough digital. Film screen is virtually history now, in fact there are almost no questions on the registry regarding film screen.

I know Mr. Bushong is predisposed with other life issues, but if they don't get with the program, some other text book will knock this off the pedestal

Comes in handy 17 Mar 2011
By Stacey - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
This is not the main book that I learn out of in class, but when it comes to studying it's another source to look into. In every chapter there are small boxes at the end of each subtitle that sums it up into a sentence or two of what the key information is.
