This pocket-sized guide, drawn from the twelfth edition of Clark's Positioning in Radiography, provides clear and practical advice to help radiographers in their day-to-day work. The authors considered that it is important for radiographers and students to have access to an additional text available in a "pocket" format which is easily transportable and convenient to use during everyday radiographic practice. 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. Together with key points, this information helps the radiographer achieve the ideal image result.
