Designed for rapid reference, it covers how to position the patient and the central ray, describes the essential image characteristics, and illustrates each radiographic projection with a positioning photograph and a radiograph. The authors have included a range of additional information new to this text. This includes a protocol for evaluating images (the "10-point plan") and a range of general advice for undertaking procedures in a professional and efficient manner. The book also includes basic information in relation to some non-imaging diagnostic tests, common medical terminology, and abbreviations. This is designed to help readers gain a better understanding of the diagnostic requirements and role of particular imaging procedures from the information presented in X-ray requests. In addition, the book discusses image evaluation, medical abbreviations, relevant normal blood values, and radiation protection.
