Description

Get a head start in producing quality images and fewer repeat radiographs with Fauber’s Radiographic Imaging and Exposure, 5th Edition. Covering both digital radiography and film-screen radiography, this practical text is the key to mastering the fundamentals of imaging, passing the ARRT certification exam, and becoming a successful radiography professional. Along with the radiography protection alerts, mathematical applications, and concise writing style retained from the last edition, this new edition features updated content reflecting the latest ARRT and ASRT content, expanded coverage of digital fluoroscopy, and enhanced content on problem-solving in situations of poor-quality radiographs.

Key Features

  • Extensive digital radiography coverage helps readers learn to acquire, process, and display digital images while discussing the advantages and limitations of digital vs. film processes.
  • Concentration on imaging and exposure lays the groundwork for becoming a competent radiographer.
  • Radiation Protection alerts highlight the variables that impact patient exposure and how radiographers can control them.
  • Important Relationships sections recap the relationships among concepts being discussed, calling attention to how they relate to one another.
