About This Book
ADAPTIVE RADIOGRAPHY WITH TRAUMA, IMAGE CRITIQUE, AND CRITICAL THINKING, 1st Edition gives you a fresh perspective on radiographic positioning and critiquing in the real world. Unlike most radiography books, which approach topics in terms of the average patient under near ideal conditions, this text offers strategies and helpful tricks of the trade to employ when "the usual" does not apply. Based on developing adaptive thinking skills, the book shows you how to consider the paradigms and rules of radiology, examining and quantifying those that work while challenging those that don't. Thorough discussions on adapting beam angles, beam divergence, expansion of the light field, and spacial relations in positioning deliver the foundations of radiography and introduce quantifiable, repeatable methods. ADAPTIVE RADIOGRAPHY WITH TRAUMA, IMAGE CRITIQUE, AND CRITICAL THINKING, 1st Edition also addresses trauma and mobile radiography and positioning, changes brought about by the advent of digital radiography, routine and trauma skull positioning, and much more. Real-life case studies and critical thinking questions help you apply methods to a variety of issues and clinical settings, developing the problem-solving skills you need for success in any radiographic field.
