About this app

Radiographic Positioning Guide for Medical Imaging Professionals and Students

Similar to x-ray pocket guide or reference booklet.

Detailed instructions for more than 200 radiographic positions:
1. technical factors
2. image receptor size and orientation
3. patient and part positioning
4. respiration instructions
5. central ray entrance/exit points and angulation
6. image quality points
7. structures demonstrated

Suggested digital imaging systems technical factor settings added for all positions (except nephrotomography).

Representative radiographic image which can be enlarged for closer inspection.

Enlargeable photograph of properly positioned human model showing the correctly collimated area of interest with the central ray entry point.

A helpful NOTE tab for every position; save techniques, special terms, or other helpful information.

Search function finds search term in position titles and/or instructions.

My Routines function allows grouping of selected positions into a saved routine.

My Notes function allows saving notes not related to a position.

Developed using the ARRT Content Specifications to include nearly all ARRT entry-level radiographic positions.
- “OPTIONAL” positions are included which may be ordered in clinical practice. These OPTIONAL positions are judged by the authors and other educational colleagues as handy references, but are not listed on the ARRT Radiography Content.

Instructions referenced to the most recent ASRT Radiography Curriculum and national positioning texts.

Written and edited by 2 Ph.D. radiography educators, each with more than 30 years of teaching experience.

A convenient guide to positioning the patient and a valuable study aid for radiography students.

A great reference and review tool for technologists and clinical instructors.
