As advanced practices and role extension within the healthcare sector continues unabated, increasingly practitioners seek ways to widen their professional remit and develop and add to their skills. <i>Interpreting Trauma Radiographs</i> provides a unique guide to enable radiographers and trained healthcare professionals to confidently and competently interpret and report on radiographic images. Designed specifically for radiographers, casualty (accident and emergency) medical officers and trainees, and other health professionals who regularly encounter trauma radiography as part of their work, this book brings together expert contributions on the clinical, medical, legal and scientific aspects of radiographic interpretation and reporting, promoting a thorough understanding of both the general framework of reporting and the detail of image interpretation. <br><p><br><p>The book is divided into two sections. The first section deals with the overall framework of image reporting and interpretation: the radiologist’s perspective, the legal aspects, scientific background and the psychological nature of perception and interpretation. The second section focuses on image interpretation of regional anatomy, presented to support both reporting practitioners in training and those more experienced in reporting practice. <br><p>Interpreting Trauma Radiographs is an invaluable companion for qualified radiographers, radiographers in training, casualty medical officers, and other healthcare professionals, such as nurse practitioners, aspiring to interpret and report on radiographic images.
"Having spent nearly 100 years preventing non-medical staff fromreporting radiographs, a significant part of the radiologicalprofession, facing with the spiralling radiological workload, isbeginning to think otherwise. This book provides an invaluablecompanion for those who would come around to this 'new'concept.
This text is a valuable source of information for the followingprofessional groups. Radiographers experienced in skeletalreporting or undertaking 'red dot' reporting and those training forthese roles; medical practitioners, in particular casualtyresidents who work in emergency departments; physiotherapists andother professional groups who have an interest in musculo-skeletaltrauma and pathology. Finally, I would recommend that this book beavailable on the shelves of imaging departments' libraries for itwill greatly help the specialist registrars in radiology. Sectionone would be particularly read with benefit by the latter."
