Help your students gain the knowledge and skills they need to succeed as radiologic technologists! Textbook of Radiographic Positioning and Related Anatomy, 11th Edition provides the essential information that RTs need to perform hundreds of radiographic procedures and produce clear, diagnostic-quality images. Easy-to-follow guidelines help students learn anatomy and positioning and minimize imaging errors. In fact, each positioning page spotlights just one projection, with bulleted information on the left side of the page and positioning photos, anatomical drawings, and correctly positioned and correctly exposed radiographic images on the right. Ideal for two-year radiography programs, this book also provides excellent preparation for the ARRT® certification examination.
    • NEW! Updated photographs visually demonstrate the latest digital technology used in radiography with new radiographs as well as images of positioning and new equipment.
    • NEW! The latest ARRT® content specifications and ASRT curriculum guidelines prepare students for certification exams and for clinical practice.
    • NEW! Updated radiographic projections have been reviewed and recommended by orthopedists, radiologists, educators, and technologists.
    • NEW! Expanded information on the bariatric patient is included, and coverage of outdated technology and positions is eliminated.
    • Labeled radiographs (radiographic overlays) identify key radiographic anatomy and landmarks to help students recognize anatomy and determine if they have captured the correct diagnostic information on images.
    • Display of just one projection per page in Positioning chapters presents a manageable amount of information in an easily accessible format.
    • Positioning pages for projections show positioning photographs plus radiographic and anatomy-labeled images side-by-side on a single page with written summaries of topics such as clinical indications, technical factors, patient and body part positions, recommended collimation field size, and evaluation criteria.
    • Clinical Indications sections on positioning pages summarize conditions or pathologies that may be demonstrated by structures or tissues in an examination or projection.
    • Evaluation Criteria on positioning pages describe the evaluation/critique process that should be completed for each radiographic image.
    • Pediatric, Geriatric, and Bariatric Patient Considerations are provided to prepare technologists to accommodate unique patient needs.
    • Critique images at the end of positioning chapters test student understanding of common positioning and technical errors found in radiographs, with answer keys provided for instructors on the Evolve website.
    • Resources for instructors on Evolve include 1,100 PowerPoint® slides, an image collection, and a test bank of more than 2,000 questions; an additional 175+ review questions are provided for students.
    • NEW! Updated photographs visually demonstrate the latest digital technology used in radiography with new radiographs as well as images of positioning and new equipment.
