Bhargava, S. K. (2005). Radiological differential diagnosis. New Delhi: Jaypee Bros. Medical Publishers.

Bhargava describes various imaging techniques applied in radiology. These techniques include x-rays, Position Emission Tomography (PET) and Computer Tomography (CT) scans and Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI).

Collins, J. (2005). Importance of the Radiology Program Coordinator 1. Academic Radiology.doi:10.106/j.acra.2005.04.008

Collins looks at the importance of radiology in maximizing effectiveness of clinical care. This is because radiology enables monitoring of treatment and prediction of outcomes.

El-Genk, M.s., Tournier, J., Sholtis, J. A., & Lipinski, R.J. (2000).Coated particle fuel for radioisotope power systems and heater units: status and future research needs. Journal of The American College of Radiology.doi:10.1063/1.1290967

The journal suggests careful handling of radiological equipment by qualified radiologist to prevent health risks. However, it calls for further research in the sector that would result to safer equipments and imaging techniques.

Friedrich, M., & Sickles, E.A. (2000). Radiological diagnosis of breast diseases. Berlin: Springer.

The book describes application of imaging techniques in diagnosis and treatment for diseases like breast cancer. The book further explains the working of electromagnetic radiation or sound waves in securing internal images that are analyzed and the appropriate treatment decided.


Given, M. A. (2008). A brief history of medical radiation: from cancer-causing to cancer treatment.

The article gives the history of evolution that has occurred in the radiological sector over the years. It indicates the development of radiological technology from exploitation of different image formation by use of simple equipments evolving to advance equipments.

Gunderman, R.B. (2005). The Medical Community’s Changing Vision of the Patient: The Importance of Radiology. Radiology.doi:10.1148/radiol.2342040892

The article points out the invaluable contribution of radiological innovation to health care. Radiological has enabled accessibility of anatomical and pathological body structures thus aiding in detection of internal injuries and their treatment that were earlier on difficult.

Scheiner, J.D., Noto, R.B., & McCarten, K.M.(2002). Importance of Radiology Clerkships in Teaching Medical Students Life-Threatening Abnormalities on Conventional Chest Radiographs. Academic Radiology.doi:10.106/S1076-6332(03)80175-7

The article looks into the negative impacts of radiological treatment. It explores the dangers of over exposure to radioactive materials indicating that it increases the chances of occurrence of chronic diseases like cancer. Therefore, it is risky to both radiologists and patients.

Zaider, M., & Rossi, H.H. (2001). Radiation Science for Physicians and Public Health Workers. Boston, MA: Springer US.

Zaider and Rossi talk about the importance of equipping physicians and public health workers with the radiological skills. Radiological department is not independent since radiologists work in conjunction with other physicals in analyzing images to determine the correct diagnosis and determining effective treatment.
