Following the sucess of the previous editions of this established text, the sixth edition of Chesneys' Radiographic Imaging reflects the advances in radiography education and practice, and the changing role of the radiographer. With the needs of the student in mind, the authors have identified the growing need to reference source material wherever possible. Coverage of radiographic imaging processed has been revised and updated throughout. Digital technology has been expanded and new sections on digital picture archiving and communication systems and computed radiography have been introduced. Descriptions of dry silver imaging and receiver operating characteristics have been included. The importance of health and safety in processing areas is also covered.

Chesneys' Radiographic Imaging provides a sound knowledge base for students. It will also be of interest to radiographers working in an increasingly demanding workplace with new technology of ever increasing complexity.
