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! New position added on Apical AP axial give you information and photographs on this position.

Reinforce your knowledge of radiographic positioning and anatomy, and produce quality radiographs! Corresponding to the chapters in Bontrager and Lampignano’s Textbook of Radiographic Positioning and Related Anatomy, 8th Edition, this practical workbook offers a wide variety of exercises including situation-based questions, film critique questions, laboratory activities, and self-evaluation tests. A wide variety of exercises include questions on anatomy, positioning critique, and image evaluation, with answers at the end of the workbook. Chapter competencies are formatted as a set of tasks that you should be able to perform after working through the material. Situational questions describe clinical scenarios, then ask you to apply your knowledge to real-life examples. Film critique questions prepare you to evaluate the quality of radiographs and ask what positioning corrections need to be made to improve the image. Laboratory exercises provide hands-on experience as you perform radiographs using phantoms, evaluate the images, and practice positioning. Self-tests at the ends of chapters help you assess your learning with multiple choice, labeling, short answer, and true/false questions. Updated content matches the revisions to the textbook. Stronger focus on computed and digital radiography in questions includes images from the newest equipment. Expanded coverage of computed tomography reflects changes in practice.
