SUMMARY

Designed as a textbook for radiographers, this up-to-date manual provides an accessible store of information on pediatric imaging procedures, with clearly described techniques and instructions. The aim is to simplify the pediatric examination and facilitate the experience for the patient, parent, and technologist. Extensively illustrated, this work describes in detail correct positioning, radiation protection, and methods of immobilization. The major portion of the book was written by senior and supervisory radiographers with years of experience in this area. The concluding chapters, written by a radiologist, clarify for the technologist what is required in the final image for accurate diagnosis
