The Radiology Technologist's Handbook to Surgical Procedures
In the past several years, the rapid development of sophisticated imaging modalities has made radiology the fastest growing specialty in medicine. It is important for the radiologic technologist to keep pace with technology's advancements.
The influx of freestanding outpatient facilities and the demands of insurance companies, HMOs and third party reimbursement have brought about change. Medical facilities have begun to call upon nurses, surgical technicians, and other non-radiologic personnel to assist with patient positioning during surgical procedures requiring imaging-creating a need for a concise, how-to guide to performing surgical procedures.
The Radiology Technologist's Handbook to Surgical Procedures provides a quick reference for using fluoroscopic and x-ray equipment during surgical procedures. This book includes detailed descriptions and photographs taken in actual clinical settings.
By using this manual as a foundation, the radiologic technologist will be able to master many of the operating room x-ray procedures.
