Summary Technical Fundamentals of Radiology and CT is intended to cover all issues related to radiology and computed tomography, from the technological point of view, both for understanding the operation of all devices involved and for their maintenance. It is intended for students and a wide range of professionals working in various fields of radiology, those who take images and know little about the workings of the devices, and professionals who install, maintain and solve technological problems of all radiological systems used in health institutions.
Note Guillermo Avendano Cervantes has over more than 38 years working in hospitals and universities in Chile, Panama, Cuba, and Mexico. He is currently Professor of Biomedical Engineering and Director of CCIB Center of Knowledge in Biomedical Engineering from the University of Valparaiso where he specializes in the education and training in hospital safety issues such as the safe handling of gases, electromedical safety and safety in radiological and nuclear processes. He has also designed and built X-ray equipment in Mexico, Panama and Chile, and has published a number of books in this area.
