- Clear procedure summary and positioning of equipment and techniques with resulting images helps make unfamiliar surgical procedures easy to follow
- Quick reference guide with chapters separated by case type and anatomical region with headers indicating regions
- Sections including safe working in theatres and team working provides the reader with tools to help gain confidence and deal with any problems that may occur
Introduction to Intra-Operative and Surgical Radiography is designed as a quick guide and reference text that covers both imaging techniques and requirements for common surgical procedures, as well as practical information on use of imaging equipment and working in the theatre environment.
Each section covers both surgical and imaging techniques, in order to give the radiographer a better idea of what is required. The book includes sections on the most common orthopaedic, urology, hepato-biliary, spinal neurosurgery, paediatric, and pain clinic procedures. Each procedure includes a case summary and comprehensive imaging that covers the positioning, and approach with the imaging equipment, as well as example resulting radiographs with annotations and information for each.
Sections also discuss the practical skills of working in theatres such as team work and safe practice, including infection control and sterile fields, radiation protection, and management of resources for running imaging for theatres, including potential errors and pitfalls. .
Practical and highly illustrated, Introduction to Intra-Operative and Surgical Radiographyprovides an accessible and user friendly reference text for radiographers that covers both imaging techniques and requirements for the most common surgical procedures.
