Radiography is an integral part of paediatric health care. It is frequently requested to assist in the diagnosis, management and treatment of childhood disease and illness. Accurate interpretation of paediatric radiographs can depend entirely on the quality of images produced by the radiographer, yet there are few books available on this crucial aspect of radiographic practice. Paediatric Radiography fills a gap. It explores radiographic practice within the context of the modern health service and focuses on how our knowledge and understanding of paediatric growth, development and illness can inform and influence radiographic procedures. It includes detailed coverage of specific paediatric techniques and good practice models, including the role of multi-modality imaging, and looks specifically at radiation protection, the chest and upper airways, the abdomen, neonatal radiography, trauma, orthopaedics, and non-accidental injury.
This is a comprehensive textbook on the imaging of pediatric skeletal trauma. It gives radiologists and pediatric surgeons a detailed description of the techniques used as well as examples of the imaging findings and details of their clinical relevance. Each chapter is written by an expert in the field and includes a wealth of illustrations. The book provides invaluable advice on those features which will affect the orthopedic management of a child.
First published in 1939, this is the definitive text on patient positioning for the diagnostic radiography student and practitioner. The experienced author team appreciates 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. This 12th edition retains the book’s pre-eminence in the field, with hundreds of positioning photographs and explanatory line diagrams, a clearly defined and easy-to-follow structure, and international applicability. The book presents the essentials of radiographic techniques in a practical way, avoiding unnecessary technical complexity and ensuring that the student and practitioner can find quickly the information that they require regarding particular positions. All the standard positioning is included, accompanied by supplementary positions where relevant and illustrations of pathology where appropriate. Common errors in positioning are also discussed.
I hope this book, which covers the Equipment section of With the help of the Superintendent find out which quality the DCR and HDCR syllabuses, will be of help not only assurance tests are carried out on the equipment and ask to those students preparing for these examinations, but for permission to participate in the procedures. also for those taking the modular HDCR to be introduced Remember, radiography is a practical subject - learning sometime in the near future, and indeed to those returning from books is of little value unless you apply it to the to radiography after a break in service. work you are doing - unless of course you are preparing In addition to reading a wide range of technical litera for a change of job or promotion! ture, I would hope that students will relate this knowledge Finally, whether you are using this book to refresh your to the equipment they use in the Department. For example knowledge prior to returning to radiography after a break what type of equipment are they using? Who was the in service, or as part of your preparation for the DCR or manufacturer? What sort of generator is it? What inter HDCR, or indeed if you are using it in conjunction with locks are present? What is the maximum loading of the a distanced learning course, may I wish you good luck and tube? Is it a falling load generator? success in your endeavours.
With chapters from globally recognized academics, General Radiography shows the multifaceted approach to general radiography and how it enhances healthcare delivery. Potentially influential to how healthcare delivery is offered, it begins with the pertinent chapters examining image acquisition and dose optimization in diagnostic radiography. Next, chapters reflect and critically discuss aspects central to patient care, and imaging within trauma, critical care and pediatric situations. The final section of this book then explores the learning, teaching and education in the field of diagnostic radiography, with novel strategies illustrated.
This book offers the reader sound advice on how to perform optimal conventional pediatric radiographs and how to obtain quick and easy organ dose estimates in order to improve the optimization process in pediatric imaging. Clear guidelines are provided for minimization of the radiation exposure of children through optimization of the radiation exposure conditions, and conversion coefficients are presented for calculation of the organ doses achieved in organs and tissues during conventional pediatric radiography, taking into consideration both optimal and suboptimal radiation field settings. Previously published conversion coefficients have failed to represent the variation in radiation field settings in daily clinical routine, which has made it difficult for the pediatric radiologist to estimate the impact of the field settings on absorbed doses in organs and tissues. The aim of this book, co-written by a pediatric radiologist, a physician and physicist, and a medical radiation technologist, is to address this issue by providing, for the first time, a thorough overview of clinical radiation field settings and their implications for radiation protection. An accompanying volume is devoted to fluoroscopy.
First published in 1939, Clark's Positioning in Radiography is the preeminent text on positioning technique for diagnostic radiographers.Whilst retaining the clear and easy-to-follow structure of the previous edition, the thirteenth edition includes a number of changes and innovations in radiographic technique. The text has been extensively updated
This book provides an overview of all aspects of radiography for the practitioner. It is written to address the areas of practice of assistant practitioners and practitioners within the clinical environment. Areas covered range from ethics and communication, through to the physics of radiography and x-ray production, and specialist techniques. Anatomy, physiology and pathology are also covered, ensuring the text is a complete introduction to radiography. Each chapter covers key points and provides revision questions (with answers) and recommended reading for exploring the chapter topic in more depth. Very structured text with clear headings and relevance to practice indicated throughout Chapter style will enable students to dip into text to find relevant information as an aid to revision Set of revision questions at end of each chapter All contributors currently teach Assistant Practitioners and student radiographers
The most popular pediatric imaging text among radiology residents, program directors, and practitioners is now in its updated, expanded Third Edition. This edition's contributing authors include faculty of the Department of Radiology at Children's Hospital in Boston--the largest pediatric medical center in the United States. The state-of-the-art coverage highlights the expanding pediatric applications of ultrasound, CT, MRI, nuclear medicine, and vascular/interventional techniques. A new chapter on head and neck imaging is also included. Complementing the text are more than 2,000 scans and line drawings--over 1,300 new to this edition--as well as numerous diagnostic algorithms and tables of differential diagnosis.
The third edition of Carvers’ Medical Imaging supports radiography students to take a reflective, evidence-based approach that will enhance their practice. This important textbook comprehensively covers the full range of medical imaging methods and techniques in one volume, and discusses them in relation to imaging principles, radiation dose, patient condition, body area and pathologies. It encourages the student to critically analyse their work rather than simply carrying out tasks. The book has been updated by an impressive team of contributors to align with developments in both radiographic techniques and the role of the radiographer. It is an essential companion for students of BSc (Hons) diagnostic radiography, those undertaking a foundation degree in radiographic practice or bachelor of medicine, and postgraduates alike.
