Perfect your positioning skills with the leading radiography text and clinical reference! Merrill's Atlas of Radiographic Positioning & Procedures, 15th Edition helps you learn to position patients properly, set exposures, and produce the clear radiographs needed to make accurate diagnoses. Guidelines to both common and uncommon projections prepare you for every kind of patient encounter. Anatomy and positioning information is organized by bone group or organ system, and coverage of special imaging modalities includes CT, MRI, sonography, radiation therapy, and more. Written by noted educators Jeannean Hall Rollins, Bruce Long, and Tammy Curtis, Merrill's Atlas is not just the gold standard in imaging - it also prepares you for the ARRT exam!
- NEW! Updated content reflects the advances and continuing evolution of digital imaging technology.
- NEW! Revised positioning techniques reflect the latest American Society of Radiologic Technologists (ASRT) standards, and include photos of current digital imaging for the lower limb, scoliosis, pain management, and the swallowing dysfunction.
- NEW! Added digital radiographs provide greater contrast resolution for improved visualization of pertinent anatomy.
