First published in 1939, this is the definitive text on patient positioning for the diagnostic radiography student and practitioner. The experienced author team appreciates that there is no substitute for a good understanding of basic skills in patient positioning and an accurate knowledge of anatomy to ensure good radiographic practice.

This 12th edition retains the book's pre-eminence in the field, with hundreds of positioning photographs and explanatory line diagrams, a clearly defined and easy-to-follow structure, and international applicability.

The book presents the essentials of radiographic techniques in a practical way, avoiding unnecessary technical complexity and ensuring that the student and practitioner can find quickly the information that they require regarding particular positions. All the standard positioning is included, accompanied by supplementary positions where relevant and illustrations of pathology where appropriate. Common errors in positioning are also discussed.

Review quote

This book has succeeded in presenting the essentials of radiographic technique in a logical sequence and in as practical a form as possible. It provides easy reference to the most widely used and up-to-date radiographic techniques, presenting the information in a clear and concise manner. It is a must for every department
British Journal of Radiology

This book will continue to be the definitive work on radiographic technique to which students and radiographers can refer, confident that they will find information quickly and described in such a way that it can be easily understood.

The current authors are to be congratulated for making a good book even better.
Clinical Radiology

This edition is an excellent update to this series on radiographic positioning and techniques. The sections on digital radiography provide useful information on the acquisition of digital images and their incorporation into a modern PACs system. This book can be used as either a reference or study aid for the radiography student, technologist, radiologist, or resident who desires to further their knowledge in radiographic techniques.
