Alexander Peck became interested in the interpretation of imaging shortly after qualifying and being immersed in the task of finding a suitable digital replacement for the widely used analogue ‘red dot’ stickers used at Northwick Park Hospital at the time Computed Radiography began to be deployed across the London region. After meeting Jeremy Weldon, he undertook the Radiology Red Dot course in the first few weeks of starting employment as a (then Link-Grade) Radiographer. Realising that commenting and initial image interpretation was becoming more and more commonplace but finding learning resources difficult to come by, he began to source options for a focussed text covering these areas, leading to this book. Alexander holds a number of national advisory positions, and was awarded Chartered I.T. Professional status for his developments in the field of Digital Imaging and PACS.
Alexander is an author or contributor in a number of other current Clark’s texts and teaches widely across the UK.
