With chapters from globally recognized academics, this book shows a multifaceted approach to general radiography and how it enhances healthcare delivery. Potentially influential to how healthcare delivery is offered, it begins with the pertinent chapters examining image acquisition and dose optimization in diagnostic radiography. Next, chapters reflect and critically discuss aspects central to patient care, and imaging within trauma, critical care and pediatric situations. The final section of this book then explores the learning, teaching and education in the field of diagnostic radiography, with novel strategies illustrated.

About the Series

Medical Imaging in Practice

The aim of the Medical Imaging Practice Series is to provide support to medical imaging professionals in their work. Further, this series aims to help emerging professionals, such as undergraduate and postgraduate students, by providing the information needed to gain a sound understanding of key and emerging topics relating to general imaging, computed tomography, magnetic resonance imaging, nuclear medicine, mammography, ultrasonography, patient care and image interpretation. Experienced authors within their respective sub-specialities will be asked to write the book(s) and/or bring together monographs, with all texts independently reviewed by academics within the medical imaging profession(s).
