AJN award winner!This is a concise, easy-to-use reference, enabling health care providers to identify and understand how and when to use the full scope of medical imaging testing modalities - radiographs, CTs, nuclear imaging, and ultrasound scans and images. The new second edition features a more in-depth discussion of each modality with a focus on the foundational concepts of radiography interpretation of the chest, abdomen, extremities, and spine. It expands coverage of imaging and increases the number of images provided for a total of 400. In addition, the Springer Connect website includes dozens of videos to greatly enhance the learning process.

With clear descriptions of each modality-supported by figures, tables, and actual patient films-the text guides readers through the clinical decision-making process. It describes how to choose the best diagnostic test to assess a presenting condition, and examines interpretations of plain radiographs of the chest, abdomen, extremities, and spine. The book fosters an in-depth understanding of the differences between modalities, their attributes, and an appreciation for their parameters with age-appropriate considerations. To assist health care practitioners with the challenges of interpreting plain radiographs, the book simplifies this process with an incremental approach to correct interpretation of what appears on the radiograph and understanding the rationale behind the interpretation. Purchase includes online access via most mobile devices or computers.
