Featuring a practical, clinical approach, this title helps you build a foundation in chest x-ray interpretation. It presents fundamental principles and key anatomical concepts. It walks you through examples of chest x-ray features that provide evidence of abnormality. It explores a variety of problems and dilemmas common to clinical practice.
Suitable for all those who work in the Emergency Department, this book offers step-by-step analytical approaches which help them to answer this question: "These images look normal to me, but... how can I be sure that I am not missing a subtle but important abnormality?"
Regardless of changes in technology and clinical grading, the most important role of the radiographer remains unchanged - ensuring the production of high quality images and optimal treatment. This title provides comprehensive coverage of the principles and application of physics for both diagnostic and therapeutic radiography students.
Concerned with skeletal muscle physiology sand biochemistry. This book covers from embryonic development, muscle organization, energy metabolism, structure of the muscle fibre to mechanisms of fatigue. It is illustrated, and features appropriate photographs of fibres and drawings/graphs to illustrate biochemistry.
