"Perfect Medical Presentations" covers PowerPoint in medicine from beginner to expert...and more! This book explains the basics of digital images, with particular emphasis on medical images. The chapters take the reader step by step from absolute beginner to advanced techniques for preparation of complex presentations, including the use of video and the preparation of interactive PowerPoint quizzes. Tied in with this, the reader learns how to prepare images in Photoshop Elements (a trial version of which is on the accompanying CD), to scan images and X-rays, to download images from the web and to get images directly from modern digital radiology equipment. After reading this book, there can be no excuse for bloated or boring PowerPoint presentations! The accompanying CD even includes 20 free purpose designed PowerPoint templates. This book provides simple, tutorial based teaching in the use of digital imaging in medicine, dentistry and nursing.
By the time readers have completed the exercises in the book, they will be able to confidently manipulate digital images, understand file types, enhance images, correct flaws such as removal of dust and scratch marks, archive images without loss of quality and insert images or video into a PowerPoint presentation. In addition they will be able to design their own PowerPoint templates and posters, specific for their institution. To complement the tutorial based teaching in the use of PowerPoint, the book addresses how to plan and deliver a presentation, and the legal and ethical issues surrounding digital photography in healthcare. Medical students, doctors in training, nurses, dentists, paramedics, professions allied to medicine and healthcare educators, whether beginners or experienced presenters wanting to learn more, will all find this an essential resource.
