Imaging for nurses is a practical guide for nurses in imaging departments and for all clinical nurse specialists caring for patients undergoing imaging procedures and investigations e.g. in the areas of cardiology, vascular interventions, accident and emergency, urology, neurology, and gastro-intestinal medicine
Imaging for nurses addresses all aspects of nursing care including patient preparation, imaging procedures, and post-procedure care. It provides a clear introduction to essential imaging theory and the role and responsibilities of the nurse in imaging procedures. Separate chapters cover fluoroscopy, ultrasound, computerised tomography, magnetic resonance imaging and use of radioisotopes for ease of reference.
