The Radiological Sciences Dictionary is a rapid reference guide for all hospital staff employed in diagnostic imaging, providing definitions of over 3000 keywords as applied to the technology of diagnostic radiology.

Written in a concise and easy to digest form, the dictionary covers a wide variety of subject matter, including:
· radiation legislation and measurement
· computing and digital imaging terminology
· nuclear medicine radionuclides and radiopharmaceuticals
· radiographic contrast agents (x-ray, MRI and ultrasound)
· definitions used in ultrasound and MRI technology
· statistical expressions and general scientific terms relevant to radiology.

Keywords are linked so that a particular topic can be followed by reference to all relevant keywords. In many instances, keywords are further defined by showing worked examples.

Additional useful entries to the dictionary include historical reference to notable persons who have contributed to diagnostic imaging, as well as web page contacts for relevant worldwide organisations.

The Radiological Sciences Dictionary is an invaluable reference for anyone training or qualified in diagnostic imaging, including radiologists, radiographers, physicists and technicians
