Editorial Reviews

Review

"Although the text is American based, Bone Densitometry for Technologists would be useful for Canadian technologists certifying in the field of bone densitometry or for those interested in learning more about a related medical radiation technology modality. It would also be an excellent reference text for libraries and medical radiation technology education programs." -The Canadian Journal of Medical Radiation Technology

From the Back Cover

With the rapid proliferation of highly sensitive bone densitometry devices since 1995, the level of skill required to operate them and interpret their results has risen sharply and now often exceeds the formal training of many operators. In Bone Densitometry for Technologists, leading densitometry experts Sydney Lou Bonnick, MD, FACP, and Lori Ann Lewis, MRT, CDT, set out to correct this deficiency by reviewing in simple language the essentials of densitometry and its day-to-day practice. Written specifically for radiologic technologists, nurse practitioners, physician assistants, and dedicated densitometry technologists, this book provides all of the practical knowledge needed to expertly operate any of today's sophisticated densitometry machines. Topics range from technical descriptions of all FDA-approved densitometry devices to a clinical review of osteoporosis, and include comprehensive tutorials on computer basics, anatomy for densitometrists, the art of interpreting test results, and performing successful precision studies-all crafted to meet the daily needs of the practicing densitometrist. Additional chapters complete the technologist's skill-set with discussions of mechanical maintenance, radiation safety, and the terminology and conventions used in the profession.
Comprehensive, informative, and highly practical, Bone Densitometry for Technologists emphasizes the role of densitometry and technologists in the diagnosis and management of osteoporosis. It provides a sound basis for a complete understanding of the often esoteric technical manuals supplied by manufacturers, and goes far beyond that understanding to permit expert operation of any approved densitometry device.

It is a very difficult book to read.
Emily Parker, RT(R),
The only thing that was not to my satisfaction is that there is a 10 ce A in the back of the book the expired a year ago, so you won't get credit for this book!
Cynthia Delatorre
Rather boring, but hey, it is rather boring material anyway.

This book is terrific for the QA portion of the boards. The book is easy to understand and follow. I would recommend this book if you are considering taking the registry for bone density.

I bought this book to help me study for the ARRT Bone Densitometry test. This was my sole source of information. The book itself is not very well orginized and is overly technical when it doesn't need to be. Rather boring, but hey, it is rather boring material anyway. I passed the test, so I suppose it was woth getting. All in all, not a great book, but it gets the job done.

This book was an excellent tool to pass the ARRT Done Densitometry registry. It was a little too wordy and boring, but it gave all the information that was needed for the test.

I read through this book twice and passed my ARRT bone densitometry exam without any trouble. I would recommend this book to anyone wanting to obtain their bone densitometry registry.

I bought the book to study for the ARRT bone density test. Only book I could find. Hard to understand and very technical. Took the post test in the back of the book and had hoped to get an answer key, so I could use it as a study guide. Only received a certificate showing I passed the test. Was told they couldn't give me the answers. Hopefully I can find more study material elsewhere.

This book seems to be everything that might be needed to pass the Bone Densitometry registry. The only thing that was not to my satisfaction is that there is a 10 ce A in the back of the book the expired a year ago, so you won't get credit for this book!
