I'm a first year Radiography student, I had bought 3 other books before buying textbook of radiographic positioning and related anatomy book. This book has got ALL that I need for the rest of my degree.. fantastic images, explanation and so much more.. It has all the visceral and skeletal stuff..
I give this book 20 out of 10. And I recommend it to any radiographer or radiography student.

By Misqué
I ordered this book before I started my course and it was a great buy. I also have the Clark's Pocket Handbook for Radiographers and Bones and Joints: A Guide for Students but I find this book easier to use because it combines it all in one book but still keeps things nice and simple which is good when you're getting to grips with everything. Firstly, I should say that this book is American so not all of the positioning applies to the UK but please don't let this put you off because some of it will still come in handy.

For each region of the body the chapters start with the anatomy you need to know and I thought it was pretty comprehensive without being overwhelming. There is lots of colour and plenty of clear diagrams which make it very easy to follow and take things in. At the end of the chapter comes the positioning techniques and as I say, I'm not sure they are ALL applicable here in the UK going by the positions we have learned so far in the first year at uni and compared to the Clark's handbook but as a plus point, I found it helpful that in this book they give you the positions but also explain why you would make certain little tweaks to get the best image which helped me to remember these "tweaks" when it comes to positioning. Personally I find it easier remembering things that way rather than just reading a list of steps that you get in the handbooks for example so that's another plus point. At the end of the chapters there are self test questions and x-rays for you to look at and evaluate in a format which on a smaller scale but very similar to Bones and Joints.

5.0 out of 5 stars Best Text Book For Radiographic Positioning Classes One and Two! 23 Jun 2009
By J. Brock - Published on
I graduated back in 2004 from Baker College of Owosso's Radiology Technology Program and we used this textbook. This textbook is great for an easy understanding of anatomy and radiographic exams. The one-page exam layouts are very efficient, and again easy to comprehend. It will come very handy too, later on, when you've graduated and end up pulling it out for those rare exams you do, maybe one or two times a year, (Cough), Mastoids! (Laugh). So please, do not throw it in the trash or give it back to your bookstore!

When I was in my clinical setting, I worked along side with other students from a different program. They were very jealous of my one large textbook, compared to their 3 large textbooks! Apparently their text was divided amongst three volumes, crazy!

Anyhow, I would definitely recommend this text for any student and for any program that is presently not using it. The workbook is a great addition with reinforcing the material, so I would definitely recommend getting both.

Good luck to all you future Radiographers out there.

5.0 out of 5 stars Review on Textbook of Radiogaphic positioning and related anatomy 11 Jun 2011
By von - Published on
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
This textbook is excellent. It is a very thorough text describing every positioning for radiography students. It has proved to be very helpful in my studies so far, since I am a first year undergraduate Medical Radiation Sciences student doing Diagnostic Radiography. It is always at hand when I need to clarify or look up something. It also covers a bit on how xrays work and related physics that is necessary in any radiography textbook. I highly recommend it, and am very happy with purchasing this product.

5.0 out of 5 stars It's the 'BIBLE' for Radiology Technology students! 21 May 2009
By Robin C. Danks - Published on
Hello, it's the ideal book for RT students! If your program doesn't use this book...change schools. And if they don't advise the study guides that go with it...get them anyway!

PROs: covers almost all the topics you need for positioning courses
CONs: heavy, heavy, heavy (weighs a lot)

Hey, if you can get it used without much highlighting in it...go for it.

Best of luck! I graduated in 2003 from RT school!
