Reinforce your understanding of anatomy and positioning with Mosby’s Radiography Online! Corresponding to the content in Merrill's Atlas of Radiographic Positioning & Procedures, 13th Edition, this online course helps you develop the skills needed to produce diagnostic-quality radiographs. Narrated animations and slide shows clarify difficult concepts, and problem-based learning helps you develop critical thinking skills. Interactive exercises allow you to assess your knowledge and provide the review you need to improve your test scores. From radiologic imaging experts Bruce Long, Jeannean Hall Rollins, and Barbara Smith, MRO makes it easier to learn, apply, and master the concepts in your textbook.
- Animations and slide shows with audio narration demonstrate positioning procedures and communicate concepts that are difficult to convey with static illustrations.
- A variety of interactive exercises, some with case studies, reinforce learning and make your study more interesting and engaging.
- Demonstrations of trauma and pathology include both routine and special projections to prepare you for unique situations encountered in the clinical environment.
- Image evaluation exercises show positioning as well as technical errors, and promote critical thinking.
- Labeling exercises provide a review of the anatomy and articulations of body parts, challenging your knowledge and helping you determine if you're ready to proceed in the module.
- Self-assessment quizzes help you determine your strengths and weaknesses before taking the exam.
- Glossary link on every screen offers easy access to glossary terms at any point in the course.
- Key terms are bolded and linked to definitions in the glossary.
- Image enlargement lets you see the details of radiographs in pop-up windows.
- Reading assignments correspond to Merrill's Atlas of Radiographic Positioning & Procedures, 13th Edition.
