Caffey’s Pediatric Diagnostic Imaging (12th Edition)

 Pediatrics, Radiology  Comments Off on Caffey’s Pediatric Diagnostic Imaging (12th Edition)
Dec 102020

Since 1945, radiologists have turned to Caffey’s Pediatric Diagnostic Imaging for the most comprehensive coverage and unparalleled guidance in all areas of pediatric radiology. Continuing this tradition of excellence, the completely revised 12th edition – now more concise yet still complete – focuses on the core issues you need to understand new protocols and sequences, and know what techniques are most appropriate for given clinical situations. “This text will obviously be of great interest not only to radiologists, also to those who work with children including all pediatric specialties. It is also extremely useful in countries with resource poor setting where there is shortage of well-trained radiologists in pediatric specialties.” Reviewed by: Yangon Children Hospital on behalf of the Journal of the European Paediatric Neurology Society, January 2014

“This is a thoroughly up-to-date text, divided into manageable topics, at a very reasonable price and I thoroughly recommend it to anyone who needs updating in the field of paediatrics or paediatric imaging.” RAD, February 2014

  • Determine the best modality for each patient with state-of-the art discussions of the latest pediatric imaging techniques.
  • Quickly grasp the fundamentals you need to know through a more precise, streamlined format, reorganized by systems and disease processes, as well as “Teaching Boxes” that highlight key points in each chapter.

Basic physics of ultrasonic imaging

 Radiology  Comments Off on Basic physics of ultrasonic imaging
Oct 282020

The present volume on basic physics of ultrasonographic imaging procedures provides clear and concise information on the physics behind ultrasound examinations in diagnostic imaging. It attempts to present the subject from a simple approach that should make it possible for the target groups to comprehend the important concepts which form the physical basis of ultrasonic imaging. The main target group of this manual is radiological technologists and radiographers working with diagnostic ultrasound in developing countries. Clinicians and nurse practitioners may also find the simple presentation appealing. A conscious effort has been made to avoid detailed mathematical treatment of the subject. The emphasis is on simplicity.

Chest X-ray Interpretation for Radiographers, Nurses and Allied Health Professionals

 Radiology  Comments Off on Chest X-ray Interpretation for Radiographers, Nurses and Allied Health Professionals
Oct 252020

Chest x-rays are among the most difficult plain film to report. This helpful book combines a simple introduction to the basics of chest x-ray reporting with a good number of sample cases, including actual radiographs. The book begins with the anatomy of the chest x-ray, as visualised on the posterior anterior and lateral images. This is followed by a short chapter on having a systematic approach when reporting chest x-rays, then the silhouette sign as described by Felson, then chapters on consolidation and collapse, heart failure, tumours, lung nodules, chest trauma, positioning of tubes, lines and pacemakers, chronic chest conditions and tuberculosis. Finally, there is a chapter that includes 60 cases for the reader to review. Today, many different healthcare professionals are involved in reviewing chest x-rays. This book will therefore be useful for advanced nurse practitioners, accident and emergency practitioners, and major trauma practitioners, as well as trainee radiologists, radiographers, trainee reporting radiographers and junior medics. Contents include: The radiographs and anatomy of the chest x-ray A systematic approach to reviewing the chest x-ray Felson s silhouette sign Consolidation and collapse Overview of cardiovascular disorders and heart failure Lung tumours Lung nodules Chest trauma Tubes, lines and pacemakers Chronic chest conditions Tuberculosis 60 cases

Digital Radiography in Practice

 Radiology  Comments Off on Digital Radiography in Practice
Oct 252020

by Quinn B. Carroll (Author)

Medical radiography programs will appreciate having an economical textbook that focuses on the practical aspects of digital radiography. Nearly all textbooks to date claiming the title digital radiography have dealt primarily with the managerial aspects of the topic at the expense of any practical information on how digital imaging works and its clinical implications for the daily practice of radiography. The goal of this book is to provide an accurate and adequate description of all the aspects of digital images and digital equipment, and their implications for radiographic technique and clinical application in a student-friendly way by providing crisp, clear illustrations along with readable text. Many of the lucid illustrations in this textbook are from the author’s comprehensive textbook, Radiography in the Digital Age (Charles C Thomas, 2018), to make digital radiography comprehensible to the student, but in this book the focus is only on digital topics and the facts are stated with such brief explanatory material as each topic will allow. Many digital topics are intimidating, and every attempt is made to reduce these topics to a descriptive, non-mathematical level that can be intuitively understood by the average student. A helpful glossary is included whenever a concise definition is needed for a particular term.

This is a textbook concentrating on digital imaging in a radiography department. As a radiographer I have used and reported both CR and DR images, and have been involved in departments transitioning between the two. The chapters are laid out in a good order, leading from the very basics of understanding the digital machine and how the images are produced, through to post-processing of images, and how they are best displayed, finishing with information about reporting screen quality, quality control for the machines and a final chapter introducing digital fluoroscopy. The information is worth the retail price. The content of each chapter is laid out well, with a good mix of pictures and diagrams breaking up the text. The use of radiography language helps to make it understandable, and walks you through the sometimes complex physics of image acquisition. There is good information on the capabilities and also the limitations of the equipment, and the quizzes at the end of each chapter help to cement the learning from the readings. There is an emphasis on image quality and an understanding that all radiographers should work to the ALARP principle, and how digital equipment can help this. It explains the issues with both under exposure and over exposure on image manipulation and reporting. As an American book it only mentions radiologists, but it is equally important for reporting radiographers to understand image manipulation. The information in the book would be beneficial to student radiographers and also has a place in the modern radiography department switching from CR to DR, or looking to understand the capabilities of their machinery and to get the best out of it. It will help with technical questions that may need to be asked of each manufacturer if new equipment is being sourced. I now understand more about the machinery and the imaging, and the relationship between the exposure index and the deviation index, and the limitation of manipulating the image at source for the reporter. The glossary at the end is a comprehensive list with explanation of all the terminology we should all be aware of and often use, and is a good reference point to help the all-round knowledge needed to understand DR imaging. –Hilary Rose, reporting radiographer, Weston Area Health NHS Trust / RAD Magazine / February 2020
