Bringing together conventional contrast media studies, computed tomography, ultrasound, magnetic resonance imaging, radionuclide imaging including hybrid imaging using SPECT-CT and PET-CT, DXA studies and digital interventional procedures into one volume, this definitive book is the essential source of information on the use and application of these imaging modalities in radiography.
Taking a systemic anatomical approach, carefully designed to be clear and consistent throughout and mirroring that in the popular and established textbook Clark’s Positioning in Radiography, each chapter is highly illustrated and contains sections detailing anatomy, pathologic considerations, procedure methodology, and an evaluation of recommended imaging modalities.
Reflecting the latest clinical imaging pathways and referral guidelines including IR(ME)R 2017, the Map of Medicine and RCR iRefer (8E), Clark’s Diagnostic Imaging Procedures will quickly become established as the standard textbook for students of radiography and radiographer assistant trainees and an invaluable desk reference for practising radiologists.

“This book is useful for under and postgraduate radiographic students when investigating alternative diagnostic investigations other than radiography. It is useful in clinical practice as a reference for providing advice on what gold standard imaging/investigations can be utilised in a patient’s diagnostic pathway.” -RAD Magazine
