Description

Focusing on one projection per page, Textbook of Radiographic Positioning and Related Anatomy, 8th Edition includes all of the positioning and projection information you need to know in a clear, bulleted format. Positioning photos, radiographs, and anatomical images, along with projection and positioning information, help you visualize anatomy and produce the most accurate images. With over 200 of the most commonly requested projections, this text includes all of the essential information for clinical practice.

Key Features

  • Lists and definitions of the most common pathologies likely to be encountered during specific procedures helps you understand the whole patient and produce radiographs that will make diagnosis easier for the physician.
  • Labeled radiographs identify key radiographic anatomy and landmarks to help you determine if you have captured the correct diagnostic information on your images.
  • Evaluation Criteria for each projection provide standards for evaluating the quality of each radiograph and help you produce the highest quality images.
  • Clinical Indications sections explain why a projection is needed or what pathology is demonstrated to give you a better understanding of the reasoning behind each projection.

Reviews

"The content is logically arranged and presented in a format that seamlessly  blends the teaching of anatomy with technique. This is a very useful approach which encourages the practitioner to think about how the anatomy will appear on the final image as they are positioning the patient...The quality of the images is excellent with the positioning shots in full colour  throughout... This book is a little more expensive than some of its competitors, but coming in at 826 pages and having the additional benefit of radiographic anatomy it is very good value for money. Its size and quality make it an ideal reference text for the departmental library."
