Reviews

This convenient pocket guide provides the foundations of knowledge in informatics, allowing radiographers in training and in practice, to understand, use and develop more efficient ways of imaging that will in turn deliver improved patient care. I would recommend this book or several copies of this book to every healthcare IT department that supports imaging informatics and healthcare messaging in hospitals. - Dr Dewinder S Bhachu, Great Ormond Street Hospital for Children, London.

This book covers radiology image storing, data collection and distribution, and radiology information technology, all relating to continuing advances in radiology technology over the last two decades. The compact chapters offer succinct and to-the-point information and important subtopics in informatics. The book also makes good use of pictures, diagrams, and charts to further simplify the information.
