Reduce the need for repeat radiographs! This comprehensive guide shows how to carefully evaluate an image, how to identify the improper positioning or technique that caused a poor image, and how to correct the problem. For each procedure, there is a diagnostic-quality radiograph along with several examples of unacceptable radiographs. By learning to anticipate and adjust for positioning and technique challenges, you are able to produce the best possible image on the first try.
