Following the success of the previous editions of this established text, Chesneys' Care of the Patient in Diagnostic Radiography has been thoroughly revised and updated, reflecting the many changes in the profession and in its educational provision. The seventh edition advocates a holistic approach to patient care, which radiographers and radiologic technologists will find helpful in a wide range of departments concerned with diagnostic radiography. The opening chapter describes a conceptual framework of patient care and outlines two versions of a model of the radiographic process. Other new areas include complementary imaging modalities, caring for acutely ill patients and medico-legal issues. The design and organization of a department, including the impact of advances in information technology, are also given consideration.

The book contains black-and-white illustrations.
