From the stable of 'Clark's Positioning in Radiography' now in it's 12th edition comes this practical rapid reference to radiographic techniques for students and qualified radiographers. This hands-on guide provides clear and practical advice on the radiographer's day-to-day work. It covers how to position the patient and the central ray; gives guidance on the essential image characteristics; and each radiographic projection is illustrated with a positioning photograph and a radiograph, which, together with the key points, help the radiography achieve the ideal image result. This handbook also includes additional information such as image evaluation, medical abbreviations, relevant normal blood values and material on radiation protection; all relevant and useful advice for the radiographer.
Drawn from the bestselling Clark's Positioning in Radiography, this pocket handbook provides clear and practical advice to help radiographers in their day-to-day work. Designed for rapid reference, it covers how to position the patient and the central ray, describes the essential image characteristics and illustrates each radiographic projection with a positioning photograph and a radiograph.
It is essential that any practitioner working in an imaging department and using ionizing radiation has a sound knowledge base. In order to understand the various factors affecting the production of diagnostic images, practitioners must demonstrate a grasp of the fundamental definitions of physics and how these principles may be applied to radiography. The easy-to-understand, portable format of Clark’s Essential Physics in Imaging for Radiographers makes it an invaluable tool for students, assistant practitioners, and radiographers. The book opens with chapters providing an overview of image production, basic mathematics, and physics relevant to medical imaging, which are followed by detailed chapters on physics relevant to producing diagnostic images using x-rays. Each chapter features clear learning objectives and a series of multiple choice questions to test these learning outcomes, and diagrams and photographs support the text.
Be sure you have the knowledge you need to become a Certified Dental Assistant or pass your local and state exams! Three simulated practice certification exams – 960 multiple-choice questions in all – closely mirror the content you'll be tested on, so you get the best preparation possible. This title includes additional digital media when purchased in print format. For this digital book edition, media content is not included. Three simulated Certified Dental Assistant (CDA) practice exams are organized into CDA exam sections, with the same number of questions you can expect to see in each section – General Chairside, Infection Control, and Radiation Health and Safety. Photos and illustrations pictured with the exam questions provide a realistic exam simulation. Rationales for correct and incorrect answers help you assess your understanding and gauge your exam readiness. Web links to national organizations and relevant dental sites help you know where to look for additional information.
