Help students master the critical thinking needed to produce quality radiographs on the first try with Radiographic Image Analysis, 5th Edition. This updated text reflects the latest ARRT guidelines and revamped chapters to reflect the latest digital technology. Students walk through the steps of 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. For each procedure, there is a diagnostic-quality radiograph along with several examples of unacceptable radiographs, a complete list of radiographic evaluation guidelines, and detailed discussions on how each of the evaluation points is related to positioning and technique. Each unacceptable radiograph is accompanied by a description of the misaligned anatomical structures, how the patient was mis-positioned, and how to adjust technique to obtain an acceptable radiograph.
