Description

Chapman and Nakielny’s Guide to Radiological Procedures has become the classic, concise guide to the common procedures in imaging with which a radiology trainee will be expected to be familiar. Now fully revised and updated in line with current practice, it will also prove invaluable to the wider clinical team that now delivers modern imaging services, including radiographers and radiology nurses, as well as a handy refresher for radiologists at all levels. The highly accessible format has been retained, with every technique described under a set of standard headings, making it ideal for both quick reference and exam preparation. The important topic of ‘consent’ is reflected in an additional new chapter and the latest key guidelines are referenced throughout.

New to this edition is complementary access to the complete, fully searchable eBook, making it even more practical to use than ever before, anytime, anywhere!

"Its wipe-clean cover, compact size and reasonable price make this a good value and useful asset in the office and procedure room for practitioners of all levels of expertise. Radiography and nursing staff will appreciate the information regarding room and equipment set-ups while radiologists will find it a useful primer of new and established multi-modality technique."

About the editor

Reviews

"Since its first appearance in 1981 this book has been a familar feature in radiology departments. Its early sucess was built on ease of use, logical presentation and relevant and up-to-date content. The latest edition continues this trend and is presented in an easy-to-read  and attractive format. Tab-like pages make chapter selection quick and the division of procedures into body systems simplifies the selection of each topic....The overall theme of the book is very much that of a guide. Fundamental and basic principles of each technique are described in a clear and unambiguous manner. This approach....Its wipe-clean cover, compact size and reasonable price make this a good value and useful asset in the office and procedure room for practitioners of all levels of expertise. Radiography and nursing staff will appreciate the information regarding room and equipment set-ups while radiologists will find it a useful primer of new and established multi-modality technique."
