Doody's Review ServiceReviewer: Diane E. Wingenter, MS, RTR (Wheaton Franciscan Healthcare)
Description: This radiographic positioning book is a very complete and comprehensible guide for students and technologists in the field of radiography.
Purpose: The purpose is to teach students and review for technologists the most common radiographic routines of the human body. It uses both a narrative that describes each projection and visual aids such as radiographs, labeled diagrams, and pictures of models to fully demonstrate each projection.
Audience: This book is written simply enough for the student to understand not only how to position the particular projection, but explains how to set up the x-ray equipment, review the anatomy of the part, and critique the finished radiograph. This book is also written as a review for the technologist. In this time of rapidly developing technology, constant review is mandatory.
Features: This book includes many good radiographs, labeled diagrams, and pictures of models in each described projection. Beyond this, the book touches on many special procedures that may or may not be seen in all radiology departments. Also included is a very complete glossary and an index that is very helpful in the research of a particular area.
Assessment: This book is a very good learning device for students and also a good review and reference for technologists. This new edition updates the reader on new procedures and exams in the growing field of radiologic technology.
