Overview

  • Radiographic Critique points out positioning errors to help you produce more accurate images.
  • Pathologic Indications list and define common pathologies to help you produce radiographs that make diagnosis easier for the physician.
  • Pediatric Applications and Geriatric Applications prepare you to deal with the needs of special populations, with information on exposure factors, positioning and shielding, and more.
  • Alternative Modalities or Procedures explain how additional projections or imaging modalities can supplement general radiographic exams best demonstrate specific anatomy or pathology.
  • Radiographic Criteria for each projection provide standards for evaluating the quality of each radiograph and help you produce the highest quality images.
  • Pathology Demonstrated explains why a projection is needed or what pathology is demonstrated and provides you with a greater understanding of the reasoning behind each projection.

  • Over 150 new positioning photos and updated radiographic images provide the latest information for producing accurate images.
  • Labeled radiographs identify key radiographic anatomy and landmarks to help you easily identify anatomy.
  • More content on digital radiography describes cutting-edge developments in digital technology, including digital imaging quality factors, CR/DR exposure, and more.
