Digital radiography: An overview.- Digital image processing concepts.- Computed radiography: Physics and technology.- Flat-panel digital radiography.- The standardized exposure indicator.- Digital fluoroscopy.- Digital mammography.- Digital tomosynthesis.- Picture archiving and communication systems.- Imaging informatics: A general overview.- Quality control for digital radiography.- Dose optimization in digital radiography.
This book serves as a supplement to the book 'Digital Radiography: Physical Principles and Quality Control, 2nd Edition (ISBN 978-981-13-3243-2)' published by Springer Nature in 2019. This book includes review questions of multiple choices, true/false and short answer formats based on the chapters of the already published book along with their answers. It includes questions that mimic the nature of the questions in certification examinations of professional radiologic technologist organizations, such as the American Association of Radiological Technologists (ASRT) and the Canadian Association of Medical Radiation Technologists (CAMRT) and other certification organizations in the United Kingdom and Australia.
The book includes 10-15 review questions on each of the essential topics covering the scope of digital radiography (DR), such as definition of DR, limitations of film-screen radiography, digital image processing concepts, physics and technology of computed radiography (CR), flat-panel digital radiography (FPDR), image quality descriptors including artifacts for CR and FPDR, the standardized exposure indicator, the technical aspects of digital fluoroscopy, digital mammography, digital tomosynthesis, picture archiving and communication systems (PACS), imaging informatics, quality control for DR, and radiation dose optimization in DR.
The book is relevant for diagnostic radiography students, diagnostic radiology residents (MDs), radiology practitioners and biomedical engineering technologists all over the world.
Dr Euclid Seeram was formerly the program head of the medical imaging degree at the British Columbia Institute of Technology, where he worked for 38 years serving the medical imaging education and clinical practice communities. Dr Seeram is currently an honorary senior lecturer at the Faculty of Health Sciences, University of Sydney; Adjunct Associate Professor of Medical Imaging and Radiation Sciences at Monash University, Australia; Adjunct Professor at the Faculty of Science, Charles Sturt University, Australia; and Adjunct Associate Professor of Medical Radiation Sciences at the University of Canberra. He also served as an external examiner for the computed tomography (CT) master's degree offered at University College Dublin, Ireland for about 4 years and subsequently advised the University of Sydney in Australia on curriculum matters regarding the CT specialization component of a new master's degree in medical imaging. Furthermore he has provided updates on the CT masters units offered by Charles Sturt University in Australia. Recently, he has developed a CT physics and instrumentation course for the bachelor's degree in medical radiation sciences offered by the University of Canberra in Australia
His current research interests are focused on radiation dose optimization in CT and digital radiography imaging systems. He has published several papers in professional and peer-reviewed radiologic technology journals and numerous books on CT, computers in radiology, radiographic instrumentation, digital radiography imaging systems, and radiation protection.
Dr Seeram is a founding member of the Journal of Medical Imaging and Radiation Sciences and is now on editorial boards for Radiography; Biomedical Imaging and Intervention Journal; International Journal of Radiology and Medical Imaging; Open Journal of Radiology; Journal of Allied Health; Journal of Social Science & Allied Health Professions. He also serves on the international advisory panel for the Journal of Medical Radiation Sciences.
