From the stable of 'Clark's Positioning in Radiography' comes this practical pocket-sized rapid reference to radiographic techniques for students and qualified radiographers.
This hands-on guide provides clear and practical advice on the radiographer's day-to-day work. It covers how to position the patient and the central ray; gives guidance on the essential image characteristics; and each radiographic projection is illustrated with a positioning photograph and a radiograph, which, together with the key points, help the radiography achieve the ideal image result. This handbook also includes additional information such as image evaluation, medical abbreviations, relevant normal blood values and material on radiation protection; all relevant and useful advice for the radiographer.
