The Index of Medical Imaging' is the must-have companion for diagnostic radiography students and newly qualified imaging practitioners, designed to allow easy access to descriptions and discussions of many aspects of medical imaging such as radiographic projections, positioning, procedures and clinical examinations. The Index consists of multiple lists, tables and discussions linked to (amongst others) radiography, CT, MRI and components such as radiological contrast agents, responses to contrast reactions, MRI safety. There is a glossary of terms and definitions plus a list of abbreviations that may be encountered within radiology. Tables are given that suggest the order and type of examination that should be performed as defined by the UK Royal College of Radiologists. FEATURES Supports clinical decision-making Glossary of key terms and abbreviations Unique format that consists of multiple lists, tables and discussions
