Radiographic positioning - comprehensive and concise

Now in its second edition, Pocket Atlas of Radiographic Positioning is a practical how-to guide that provides the detailed information you need to reproducibly obtain high-quality radiographic images for optimal evaluation and interpretation of normal, abnormal, and pathological anatomic findings. It shows positioning techniques for all standard examinations in conventional radiology, with and without contrast, as well as basic positioning for CT and MRI. For each type of study a double-page spread features an exemplary radiograph, positioning sketches, and helpful information on imaging technique and parameters, criteria for the best radiographic view, and patient preparation. Clearly organized to be used in day-to-day practice, the atlas serves as an ideal companion to Moeller and Reif's Pocket Atlas of Radiographic Anatomy and their three-volume Pocket Atlas of Cross-Sectional Anatomy.

Highlights of the second edition:

  • New chapters on positioning in MRI and CT, including multislice CT
  • A greatly expanded section on mammography
  • Special features, including information on the advantages of a specific view, variations of positions, and practical tips and tricks
  • Nearly 500 excellent radiographs and drawings demonstrating the relationship between correct patient positioning and effective diagnostic images

Pocket Atlas of Radiographic Positioning, Second Edition is an excellent desk or pocket reference for radiologists, radiology residents, and for radiologic technologists.

Praise for this book:
"Remarkable...a valuable, easy-to-use desk or pocket reference for medical imaging professionals at every level." - ADVANCE for Imaging & Radiation Oncology

Any pocket-sized handbook that provides in-depth coverage of multiple medical imaging modalities is a rare and remarkable thing. The second edition of Pocket Atlas of Radiographic Positioning is just such a book, containing nearly every modality, including conventional radiography, CT, MRI, angiography, and mammography...a valuable, easy-to-use desk or pocket reference for medical imaging professionals at every level.--ADVANCE for Imaging & Radiation Oncology

“We suggest this publication not only to radiologists, radiology residents, radiologic technologists and technicians, but also to professionals and students working in nuclear medicine to acquire autonomous knowledge of instruments and information.” European Journal of Nuclear Medicine and Molekular Imaging March 2010

"This pocket book presents in a condensed but comprehensive manner the proper positioning for all radiographic procedures...This second edition has been enriched by new chapters on positioning in MRI and CT, including multislice CT, and by an expanded section on mammography...Each positioning is documented by clear drawings and by the related radiological image, except for the positions in CT and MR studies, which are presented by drawings, albeit very demonstrative...a solid companion to the three volumes "Pocket Atlas of Sectional Anatomy," in which the same authors present, in a comprehensive and clear manner, the basic positioning and related radiographic images for CT and MR...will be of great value in the day-to-day practice of the radiologic technologists, but in particular it will be very useful to the Residents in Radiology."--Clinical Imaging

"A comprehensive pocket-sized guide of general radiography techniques, with lots of suggestions for different adaptations if the standard positions are not possible. With each technique there is a particularly good section "Criteria for a Good Radiographic View" which gives guidance on the optimum image, including the area or joint space that should be visuali[z]ed and its alignment. A radiograph of each position is included." --RAD Magazine
