In addition to positioning descriptions for all body parts, this pocket-sized handbook includes basic information and applied aspects of radiographic techniques and exposure factors including numerous conversion charts.
Included is a chapter on descriptions and illustrations on the various forms of digital radiography currently in use. Also included are clear explanations with photographs of all commonly performed x-ray exams. This handbook is essentially a condensed version of the positioning and technique portions of Bontrager’s Textbook of Radiographic Positioning and Related Anatomy, soon to be in its 7th edition.
This handbook is also an invaluable tool for learning radiographic positioning in a clinical setting. It has many of the features of the larger, classroom edition in a small, portable version.
