This definitive book considers special imagining procedures and techniques and interventional procedures, and is the companion volume to Clark's Positioning in Radiography. It is focused on special imagining procedures and techniques and interventional procedures. Bringing together conventional contrast media studies, computed tomography, ultrasound, magnetic resonance imaging, radionuclide imaging including PET, SPECT CT and PET MRI and digital interventional procedures into one volume, it is the essential source of information for students of Radiography and Radiographer Assistant Trainees. The book reflects as to why procedures are carried out in terms of the indications for justification under IRMER 2000 procedures and any NICE or other medical referral guidelines such as the Map of Medicine.

The book adopts an anatomical systemic approach, designed to be a clear and comprehensive reference text. Each chapter is highly illustrated and contains sections detailing anatomy, pathology considerations, procedure methodology and an evaluation of recommended imaging modalities.

Both conventional and cross-sectional procedures are described, giving details for each procedure on indications/contraindication, position of patient, imaging modality, imaging procedure, contrast media and injection data, and imaging analysis. Important information is provided on the parameters which affect image production and quality for each of the modalities described in the book as well as considering the risk benefit, sensitivity and specificity of procedures.
