Widely recognized as the gold standard of positioning texts, this highly-regarded, comprehensive resource features more than 400 projections and excellent full-color illustrations augmented by MRI images for added detail to enhance the anatomy and positioning presentations. In three volumes, it covers preliminary steps in radiography, radiation protection, and terminology, as well as anatomy and positioning information in separate chapters for each bone group or organ system. High-quality images of commonly requested projections, as well as those less commonly requested, show the reader how to properly position the patient so the resulting radiograph provides information needed to correctly diagnose the problem. Information is also provided on a variety of special imaging modalities and situations, including mobile radiography, operating room radiography, computed tomography, cardiac catheterization, magnetic resonance imaging, ultrasound, nuclear medicine technology, bone densitometry, positron emission tomography, and radiation therapy.
