Book Description

Chiropractic Radiography and Quality Assurance Handbook is the first book devoted to erect and recumbent radiographic positioning and a practical approach to quality assurance and radiographic quality control testing. It provides a step-by-step approach to performing quality radiographic studies using radiographic images to demonstrate placement of anatomical markers and the safest location for patient identification information.
Some topics covered include:
o The importance of sound radiation safety practices and appropriate protection and collimation
o Spinal radiography including changes in positioning to reduce exposure to female patients
o Extremity radiography, covering common and specialty views to assist in diagnosis of sports injuries.
Designed for both the practitioner and the student, this book provides all of the tools necessary to produce quality radiographs in a quick reference, detailed, step-by-step approach to positioning. And adding information about darkroom and film storage, film processing quality control, film artifact identification and problem solving, makes this is an in-depth, authoritative guide.
