quality and safety in radiology

by hani h. abujudeh, michael a. bruno

radiology has been transformed by new imaging advances and a greater demand for imaging, along with a much lower tolerance for error as part of the quality & safety revolution in healthcare. with a greater emphasis on patient safety and quality in imaging practice, imaging specialists are increasingly charged with ensuring patient safety and demonstrating that everything done for patients in their care meets the highest quality and safety standards.

this book offers practical guidance on understanding, creating, and implementing quality management programs in radiology. chapters are comprehensive, detailed, and organized into three sections: core concepts, management concepts, and educational & special concepts. discussions are applicable to all practice settings: community hospitals, private practice, academic radiology, and government/military practice, as well as to those preparing for the quality and safety questions on the american board of radiology’s “maintenance of certification” or initial board certification examinations. bringing together the various elements that comprise the quality and safety agenda for radiology, this book serves as a thorough roadmap and resource for radiologists, technicians, and radiology managers and administrators.

  • david dowsett; patrick a kenny; r eugene johnston

over recent years there has been a vast expansion in the variety of imaging techniques available, and developments in machine specifications continue apace. if radiologists and radiographers are to obtain optimal image quality while minimising exposure times, a good understanding of the fundamentals of the radiological science underpinning diagnostic imaging is essential.

the second edition of this well-received textbook continues to cover all technical aspects of diagnostic radiology, and remains an ideal companion during examination preparation and beyond. the content includes a review of basic science aspects of imaging, followed by a detailed explanation of radiological sciences, conventional x-ray image formation and other imaging techniques. the enormous technical advances in computed tomography, including multislice acquisition and 3d image reconstruction, digital imaging in the form of image plate and direct radiography, magnetic resonance imaging, colour flow imaging in ultrasound and positron radiopharmaceuticals in nuclear medicine, are all considered here. a chapter devoted to computers in radiology considers advances in radiology information systems and computer applications in image storage and communication systems. the text concludes with a series of general topics relating to diagnostic imaging.

the content has been revised and updated throughout to ensure it remains in line with the fellowship of the royal college of radiologists (frcr) examination, while european and american perspectives on technology, guidelines and regulations ensure international relevance.

  • improved presentation of the numerous illustrations, graphs and tables, carefully designed to complement textual explanations and enhance understanding
  • fully revised to cover new imaging technologies
  • higher production standards
  • worked examples explain complex points and clarify formulae and parameters where mathematical descriptions are required
  • keyword lists aid technical descriptions
  • invaluable as a single-source revision and reference tool
