Overview

This handy pocket companion concisely presents radiographic essentials in a quick reference format ideal for the clinical setting. Bulleted, step-by-step explanations illustrate how to position the patient for 190 of the most common radiographic projections. Unique to this pocket guide is the inclusion of computed radiography information. The guide leaves space for the user to make notes needed for easy access in the practice setting.

• Each projection is presented on a two-page spread, ideal for quick reference in the clinical setting.
• Information on patient positioning is bulleted for at-a-glance, step-by-step reference.
• Uses an eye-catching icon to remind users of the special positioning needs of computed radiography.
• Includes an exposure technique chart for each projection.
• Allows space for writing in both manual and AEC techniques.
• Illustrates the most common mobile projections.

• Now includes a number of additional mobile projections.
• Presents radiographs for each projection spread.
• Offers information on computed radiography (CR). A special icon alerts users to the special positioning adjustments needed for CR.

The book contains black-and-white illustrations.

Editorial Reviews

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: B. J. Manaster, MD, PhD (University of Utah School of Medicine)
Description: This fourth edition, spiral-bound, pocket-sized book is a guide for radiology technologists and technology students.
Purpose: The purpose of the guide is to outline appropriate patient positioning for standard radiographic views.
Audience: The intended audience is radiologic technologists.
Features: This guide contains forms for quick reference to technique (exposure charts) for technologists to complete for their particular equipment. It does have some nice features, including references to more complete descriptions in books. The guide also contains minimal hints on computed radiography technique. Another new feature is a student competency check-off. Unfortunately, this book only partially meets the author's objectives. The photographs of patient positioning are, for the most part, correct. However, this represents highly rudimentary information. Since there are no diagrams of what the resulting radiographs should look like, the technologist has no hint how to differentiate standard from poor positioning. In my experience, it is this judgment that is most difficult for the technologist. Therefore, this book would be greatly enhanced if there were diagrams and hints describing easy ways to recognize appropriate positioning on the x-ray.
Assessment: This guide provides a handy reference for technologists to record techniques in their clinical environment. However, if the technologist hopes to rely on it for an understanding of patient positioning and, therefore, adequacy of the resulting radiograph, they will be disappointed.
