First published in 1939, Clark's Positioning in Radiography is the definitive text on patient positioning for the diagnostic radiography student and practitioner. This fully revised 12th edition ensures that the title retains its pre-eminence in the field, with hundreds of new positioning photographs and brand new explanatory line diagrams, a clearly defined and easy-to-follow structure, and international applicability. The book presents the essentials of radiographic techniques in as practical a way as possible, avoiding unnecessary technical complexity and ensuring that the student and practitioner can find quickly the information that they require regarding a particular position. The experienced author team, expanded for this edition, understand that there is no substitute for a good understanding of basic skills in patient positioning and an accurate knowledge of anatomy to ensure good radiographic practice. All the standard positioning is included in this single volume, accompanied by supplementary positions where relevant and illustrations of pathology where appropriate. Common errors in positioning are also included.
