Radiographic Image Analysis
This comprehensive guide shows how to reduce the need for repeat radiographs. It teaches how to carefully evaluate an image, how to identify the improper positioning or technique that caused a poor image, and how to correct the problem. This text equips radiographers with the critical thinking skills needed to anticipate and adjust for positioning and technique challenges before a radiograph is taken, so they can produce the best possible diagnostic quality radiographs.
