This pocket-sized Handbook for Lampignano and Kendrick’s text has it all: new radiographic images, revised critiques, and more. Bontrager’s Handbook of Radiographic Positioning and Techniques, 9th Edition provides bulleted instructions, along with photos of properly positioned patients, to help you safely and confidently position for the most-commonly requested radiographic studies. Suggested techniques and critique points offer a quick reference for evaluating your own radiographs, making it an invaluable tool for learning radiographic positioning in clinical settings. Positioning chapters organized with one projection per page to present a snapshot of information in an easily accessible and portable format. Unique page layout — positioning photos and radiographic images are presented on the same page with the text explanation of each procedure — to show you how the patient should be positioned and what the image should look like. Page number references for the text are included at the bottom of each positioning page so you can easily refer to the text for greater detail and explanation concerning a particular position. 217 projections/positions and 4 conversion charts provide the essential information needed for quick reference. Positioning presentations include positioning instructions, as well as: Collimation guidelines for each projection. Suggested starting exposure factors, including kVp, mAs, SID (source-image receptor distance), type and speed of film and screens, use of grids, and large or small focal spot. Suggested AEC (automatic exposure control) pick-up cell location when photo-timed equipment can be used. Space for writing in exposure factors (techniques) for specific equipment being used. This quick review of information before beginning a procedure helps assure you that the exam is being correctly performed with the least possible patient dose. Appendices offer additional quick-reference information on patient dose, abbreviations and acronyms, and various conversion charts, enabling you to locate important information quickly. NEW! Technique chart updates reflect the latest recommendations for computed and digital radiography. UPDATED! New positioning photos reflect the latest equipment and demonstrate proper positioning. UPDATED! New radiographic images and revised critiques provide examples using the latest technology, and ensure that you are ready to evaluate your own images. EXPANDED!

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. 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. Increased emphasis on digital radiography keeps you up to date with the most recent advances in technology. Completely updated content offers expanded coverage of important concepts such as, digital imaging systems, updated CT information and AART exam requirements. More CT procedures with related sectional images, especially for areas such as skull and facial bones, reflect the shift in the field from conventional radiography to CT. Updated art visually demonstrates the latest concepts and procedures with approximately 500 new positioning photos and 150 updated radiographic images. Additional critique images provide valuable experience analyzing images to prepare you to evaluate your own images in the practice environment. Updated Technique and Dose boxes reflect the higher kV now recommended for computed and digital radiography. Imaging Wisely program information from ASRT provides protocols to minimize radiation exposure during digital procedures. The latest standards for computed radiography and digital radiography (CR/DR) from the American Association of Physicists in Medicine ensures you are current with today’s procedures and modalities.

Be prepared to meet the ARRT competency requirements! These procedure checklists make it easy. To qualify for your certification exam, you must demonstrate your competency in all 36 mandatory procedures and in at least 15 of the 30 elective procedures—and your instructors must verify your proficiencies. First, you can use the checklists to review the procedures in preparation for the exam and to develop decision-making skills that will produce the highest quality radiographs while considering the needs and limitations of the patient. Then, your instructors can use them to record their evaluation of your competency for each procedure. And, finally, program directors can use them to verify to the ARRT that the you have demonstrated the required competencies and proficiencies.

As advanced practices and role extension within the healthcare sector continues unabated, increasingly practitioners seek ways to widen their professional remit and develop and add to their skills. Interpreting Trauma Radiographs provides a unique guide to enable radiographers and trained healthcare professionals to confidently and competently interpret and report on radiographic images. Designed specifically for radiographers, casualty (accident and emergency) medical officers and trainees, and other health professionals who regularly encounter trauma radiography as part of their work, this book brings together expert contributions on the clinical, medical, legal and scientific aspects of radiographic interpretation and reporting, promoting a thorough understanding of both the general framework of reporting and the detail of image interpretation. The book is divided into two sections. The first section deals with the overall framework of image reporting and interpretation: the radiologist’s perspective, the legal aspects, scientific background and the psychological nature of perception and interpretation. The second section focuses on image interpretation of regional anatomy, presented to support both reporting practitioners in training and those more experienced in reporting practice. Interpreting Trauma Radiographs is an invaluable companion for qualified radiographers, radiographers in training, casualty medical officers, and other healthcare professionals, such as nurse practitioners, aspiring to interpret and report on radiographic images.
