Abstract: This first of a kind comprehensive radiology nursing book fills a gap by addressing important subjects for patient care and informing the nurse of professional issues and future possibilities affecting nursing practice in the imaging areas. It serves as a resource to related nursing specialties, e.g. critical care, emergency or pre and post-anesthesia care. Radiologic technologists will also find many sections of this text to be a valuable resource for understanding patient care in radiology and radiology nursing scope of practice. The book could be used as one resource for radiology nurses studying for certification.The book is subdivided into five sections that address advanced practice and leadership roles, clinical patient care topics, safety topics that are important in the imaging environment, topics affecting the patient experience, including legal considerations and professional topics affecting radiology nursing practice. The professional topics are an especially important feature in this text as they discuss new issues affecting healthcare, e.g. cybersecurity, social media, research/outcomes, interprofessional collaboration, workplace violence and current trends. Figures and tables add to the written content of the chapters.The authors, who are experts in their respective areas, include nurses practitioners, radiology nurse managers, physicians from a variety of specialties, a physicist, a dentist, attorneys, a child life specialist, an administrator and a social worker.Radiology diagnostic examinations and therapeutic procedures have become a more prominent part of patient care due to advances in technology and the ability of radiology to provide services that were traditionally done in surgery or not done because of limited knowledge. Many procedures involve administration of contrast media and or sedation and analgesia and are facilitated by the radiology nurse from initial consult to transfer to a hospital unit or discharge and follow-up. Nurses are often called upon for assistance when there is an untoward response or contrast reaction during a procedure. They serve as educators and resource personnel to the radiology department and in many instances, the entire facility. Radiology nurses are real leaders. In order to keep up-to-date on new developments radiology, nurses need new literature to support their clinical expertise and leadership. This book is an unparalleled resource, written by experts in their areas of interest.
