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.

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.
