Radiographic Techniques and Image Evaluation provides a systematic, accessible approach to radiographic positioning and comprehensive criteria for evaluation of images in the position described. Recognition in the text of the need for constant evaluation of current practice leads to discussion and consideration of alternative methods of obtaining some projections. Throughout, the students are encouraged to evaluate their own practice. Learning and revision are enhanced by the photographs and helpful hints that appear with the more formal descriptions of technique. The NRPB and Royal College of Radiologists' recommendations on radiation protection and production of a diagnostic examination with the minimum radiation dose are taken into account throughout. All general techniques including skull isocentrics, intravenous urography and Barium studies are covered as well as techniques that are increasingly being undertaken by radiographers in these days of role extension. The book is not only intended for undergraduates in the radiography profession and radiologists for the FRCR but can also be used for reference by those participating in mentorship schemes, or for the setting of image quality standards in conjunction with quality assurance.
