This comprehensive text explains in uncomplicated language "how radiography works", and includes both radiographic theory and positioning. Designed specifically for the veterinary technician by a veterinary technician, this book covers all areas of radiographic technique, including patient handling and preparation, patient positioning for all species and technical evaluation of poor quality radiographs. The book's progressive organization uses "building block" concepts to illustrate the logical incorporation of ideas - for example, physics of radiology is explained before patient positioning. Objectives and glossaries at the beginning of each chapter target key concepts for better identification and retention, and instruction on the majority of domestic small and large animals, including exotics and birds, ensures a broad base of knowledge from which to work. One-of-a-kind chapters on radiographic technique evaluation, quality assurance and quality control utilize a step-by-step approach that explains techniques and eliminates confusion, and the chapter on radiographic artifacts offers practical knowledge for better identification and management of defects in the X-ray image. The book's illustrations show correct patient positioning from a technician's point of view - readers can match their technique with the illustrations in the text to ensure proper positioning.
