A newly published textbook on radiologic sciences includes a chapter supplied by a local expert.
Christi Carter, radiologic sciences program director, contributed Radiographic Imaging, the seventh chapter of Introduction to Radiologic Science and Patient Care, Fifth Edition by Addler and Carleton. The book is a later version of the textbook Christi used when she was in college, according to Juanita Zapata Flint, executive dean of Health and Human Services.
Christi also co-authored a book about digital radiography and picture archiving and communication systems, which was published in 2007. She worked on the project with Beth Veale, BSRS, MED, RT(R) (QM), associate professor in the radiologic sciences department of Midwestern State University.
Christi’s involvement with Rad Tech associations at the state and national level “demonstrate her commitment to her profession and has increased Brookhaven’s program visibility throughout the country,” Juanita said.“I am very proud of all her accomplishments.”
In 2004, Christi built the Radiologic Technology program at Brookhaven College from the ground, up. Today, the program’s graduates have a 100 percent pass rate on their radiologic licensing exams, according to Juanita.
