Medical imaging and radiation sciences: Books & eBooks

Guide to information resources and services for Medical imaging and radiation sciences

When are books the best option for finding information?

Books are often useful for background information when learning about a topic. They may be general, such as textbooks, or specialised.


  • Always try to access the most recent edition of the book.
  • Read about the topic in a couple of books, as authors may discuss different aspects or present the information in different ways. This helps understanding.
  • Once you have a basic understanding of the topic, search for journal articles to learn more, and to access the most current information.

Referencing books - understanding a book citation

Academic writing requires you to acknowledge the sources from which you draw your information. The Library's online tutorial may help you learn the principles of citing and referencing. 

In years one and two of your Bachelor of Radiography and Medical Imaging course, you will be asked to reference using a modified Harvard style.
See the Referencing page under the Written Communication tab for more information.

This example uses the Harvard style of referencing. Hover over the image to see the example in Vancouver style.
