Gain the essential pathology understanding you need to produce quality radiographic images! Covering the disease processes most frequently diagnosed with medical imaging, Comprehensive Radiographic Pathology, 6th Edition is the perfect pathology resource for acquiring a better understanding of the clinical manifestation of different disease processes, their radiographic appearances, and their treatments. This full-color reference begins with a general overview of physiology, then covers disorders and injuries by body system. The new edition also includes the latest information on CT, MRI, SPECT, PET, ultrasound, and nuclear medicine — including updated radiographer notes, images, and review questions.
  • Thorough explanations
  • and comprehensive coverage aid readers’ understanding of disease processes and their radiographic appearance.
  • Numerous high-quality illustrations covering all modalities clearly demonstrate the clinical manifestations of different disease processes and provide readers with a standard for the high-quality images needed in radiography practice.
  • Discussion of specialized imaging explains how supplemental modalities, such as ultrasound, computed tomography, magnetic resonance imaging, nuclear medicine, single-photon emission computed tomography (SPECT), and positron emission tomography (PET) are sometimes needed to diagnose various pathologies.
  • Treatment coverage provides readers with brief explanations of the most likely treatments and the prognosis for each pathology.
  • Systems-based approach organizes the pathology of various body systems in separate chapters — each chapter provides an initial discussion of general physiology and then explains various pathologic conditions and their radiographic appearance and treatment.
  • Summary Findings tables are a great quick reference guide for practitioners.
  • Consistent organization aids readers in searching for information.
  • Study aids include an outline, key terms, objectives, and review questions for every chapter.
  • Useful appendices include an extensive glossary; a list of major prefixes, roots, and suffixes with definitions and examples; and a table of diagnostic implications of abnormal lab values.
  • NEW! Updated images in all modalities
  • keep readers abreast on the latest advances needed for clinical success.
  • NEW! Updated chapter review questions have been added to the end of every chapter.
  • NEW! Additional review questions on Evolve companion site provide students with extra resources to prepare for certification.
  • NEW! Updated radiographer notes incorporate current digital imaging information for both computed radiography and direct digital capture.

Radiographic Pathology for Technologists, 6th Edition concisely covers the injuries and abnormalities most frequently diagnosed using medical imaging to prepare you for what you are most likely to encounter on the job. This essential text also features background discussions of key anatomy and physiology principles, along with imaging considerations for each disease categorized by type followed by a description of its radiographic appearance, signs and symptoms, and treatment.Concise coverage presents approximately 150 injuries and abnormalities most frequently diagnosed using medical imaging to keep you focused on what you are most likely to encounter in practice.Correlative and differential diagnosis discussions explain the diagnostic process and demonstrate the importance of high quality images.Chapter outlines and objectives, key terms, and multiple choice and discussion questions for each chapter with answers provided in the back of the text highlight the most important concepts within each chapter.Summary tables at the end of each chapter list pathologies covered and the preferred imaging modalities for diagnosis.Trauma chapter emphasizes the multi-system implications of traumatic injuries.NEW! Replacement images and illustrations reflect current practice for general radiography and alternative modalities, such as CT, MR, and fusion imaging.NEW! Updated coverage of digital radiography gives you the most up-to-date information on 3-D reconstructions, PET imaging, molecular imaging, monoclonal antibody technology, advances in cardiac imaging, and fusion technologies.NEW! Information on the Human Genome Project in introductory chapter reflects advances in molecular medical leading to more personalized treatment of disease. NEW! Virtual endoscopic images in GI chapter illustrate the latest in endoscopic imaging techniques.NEW! Coverage of interventional procedures in hepatobiliary and urinary systems help you diagnose and treat patients using the least invasive techniques.NEW! Expansion of neoplastic disease content in respiratory system chapter highlights the important role radiographic pathology plays in diagnosis and treatment.
Learn to produce the most accurate radiographic images on the first try with Radiographic Image Analysis, 4th Edition. This thoroughly updated guide walks you through the steps of how to carefully evaluate an image, how to identify the improper positioning or technique that caused a poor image, and how to correct the problem. For each procedure, there is a diagnostic-quality radiograph along with several examples of unacceptable radiographs, a complete list of radiographic evaluation guidelines, and detailed discussions on how each of the evaluation points is related to positioning and technique. Each unacceptable radiograph is accompanied by a description of the misaligned anatomical structures, how the patient was mis-positioned, and how to adjust technique to obtain an acceptable radiograph.
