Radiographic Positioning Guide for Medical Imaging Professionals and Students Similar to x-ray pocket guide or reference booklet Detailed instructions for more than 220 radiographic positions: 1. image receptor size and orientation 2. patient and part positioning 3. respiration instructions 4. central ray entrance/exit points and angulation 5. image quality points 6. structures demonstrated Representative radiographic image which can be enlarged for closer inspection. Enlargeable photograph of properly positioned human model showing the correctly collimated area of interest with the central ray entry point. A helpful NOTE tab for every position; save techniques, special terms, or other helpful information. Search function finds search term in position titles and/or instructions. My Routines function allows grouping of selected positions into a saved routine. My Notes function allows saving notes not related to a position. Developed using the ARRT Content Specifications to include nearly all ARRT entry-level radiographic positions. - “OPTIONAL” positions are included which may be ordered in clinical practice. These OPTIONAL positions are judged by the authors and other educational colleagues as handy references, but are not listed on the ARRT Radiography Content. Instructions referenced to the most recent ASRT Radiography Curriculum and national positioning texts. Written and edited by 2 Ph.D. radiography educators, each with more than 30 years of teaching experience. A convenient guide to positioning the patient and a valuable study aid for radiography students. A great reference and review tool for technologists and clinical instructors.
If your a new tech and just need the basics, this is fine. I wouldn’t say it’s worth 25 bucks though. I was hoping it would have more specialty views. Here’s a list of common views not found on this app. Hammate hook and pisiform views of wrist. Radial head view of elbow. False profile of hips. Inlet/ outlet view of pelvis Flex/ext of L-spine. This is just what I could find missing at a quick glance. At this price I really wish it would have more. For a little more you can just buy the Merrill’s pocket book that has a lot more info to offer. How do I get my money back?
For such an expensive application, each one of the procedures should be followed by a radiograph not an explanation that a radiograph is coming soon. I’m very disappointed in this. As I would like to be able to show my students a radiograph from the correct positioning that he shown.
The latest update made this app an amazing tool. It's finally formatted for the newer iPhones so it looks nice, updated positions, and the ability to add notes is great. By far the most expensive app I've bought but well worth it.
Thrilled to see the same excellent info contained in my Bontrager book from school over 10 years ago in a handy App!! I had the pleasure of meeting Mr Ballinger years ago. Fabulous gentleman! This App is a must for any Rad Tech student, travel tech, and old Techs like me. Great job Phil 😊
Great app but little expensive.
Really handy for Rad Tech students
Just wish it had kVp and mAs other than that very useful and always with you as long as you have your phone.
I think this app is great and well organized. I am a student that will be taking my boards in 4months. It would be nice to have an option to take quizzes on the positioning. That's my only suggestion on adding to the app.
I think including kVp and mAs would make this app perfect! Great for sitting and reviewing positioning when you have down time.
Would be much better if included kVp and mAs calculator or averages for study purposes and having everything in the same spot. Awesome app though, highly recommended by teachers, students, and techs.
