Description - Interpreting Trauma Radiographs by Jonathan McConnell
As advanced practices and role extension within the healthcare sector continues unabated, increasingly practitioners seek ways to widen their professional remit and develop and add to their skills. Interpreting Trauma Radiographs provides a unique guide to enable radiographers and trained healthcare professionals to confidently and competently interpret and report on radiographic images. Designed specifically for radiographers, casualty (accident and emergency) medical officers and trainees, and other health professionals who regularly encounter trauma radiography as part of their work, this book brings together expert contributions on the clinical, medical, legal and scientific aspects of radiographic interpretation and reporting, promoting a thorough understanding of both the general framework of reporting and the detail of image interpretation. The book is divided into two sections. The first section deals with the overall framework of image reporting and interpretation: the radiologist?s perspective, the legal aspects, scientific background and the psychological nature of perception and interpretation. The second section focuses on image interpretation of regional anatomy, presented to support both reporting practitioners in training and those more experienced in reporting practice. Interpreting Trauma Radiographs is an invaluable companion for qualified radiographers, radiographers in training, casualty medical officers, and other healthcare professionals, such as nurse practitioners, aspiring to interpret and report on radiographic images.
