Overview

This title is directed primarily towards health care professionals outside of the United States. It is a practical guide to the wide variety of radiographic projections that are commonly encountered in a clinical environment. It provides clear and concise advice on how to approach radiographic positioning and technique, both efficiently and effectively. Particular emphasis is placed on the importance of achieving the best possible image with the minimum exposure. The routine examinations are dealt with by region in a systematic way and have the same easy-to-use format throughout. For each projection, there is a patient position photograph and an accompanying radiograph to ensure that the required result of the examination has been achieved. The accompanying CDrom enlarges and adapts the images to demonstrate the anatomy and areas of interest.

• The CDrom expands contents of book in three areas: technique, radiological assessment and pathology. Additional illustrations are included and leader lines and legends added to enlarged versions of existing images to help readers assess radiographs.
• Text updated and bibliography expanded.
