Editorial Reviews

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Susan Lura Sanson, MEd, RT (R)(QM)(Concordia University of Wisconsin)
Description: This review book is a volume in the Essentials of Medical Imaging Series edited by Stewert C. Bushong. There are ten short chapters that comprise a brief overview of radiographic positioning. In each chapter a set of basic review questions is included. There are some anatomy and positioning illustrations but there are no radiographic images included.
Purpose: The purpose, according to the author, is a positioning study guide for the National Registry Examination for Radiologic Technologists (ARRT examination). He also writes to help refresh positioning skills and challenge the mind of a seasoned radiologic technologist. It is not intended to be a comprehensive textbook on radiographic positioning.
Audience: This is intended for radiologic technology students and practitioners.
Features: All material in the book is presented in a concise, bulleted format. Illustrations support the bullet points and cover some anatomy. There is a glossary of terms and answers to review questions are provided.
Assessment: This is a very basic positioning review book with no radiographic images. Bullet points are included on how to position, and some anatomy diagrams are provided. There is no information relative to image assessment and correct positioning nor any indication as to what structures should be demonstrated. The review questions are very basic. This might help seasoned technologists brush up on their positioning skills, but I believe the radiography student headed toward the ARRT examination would be better off using Saia's Radiography - PREP: Program Review and Exam Preparation, 2nd Edition (Appleton & Lange, 1999) or Callaway's Mosby's Comprehensive Review of Radiography: The Complete Study Guide and Career Planner, 2nd Edition (Mosby, 1998).
