Anatomy for X-Ray Specialists
As an x-ray specialist (technologist), you need to have a good understanding of human anatomy, especially as it relates to identifying anatomical landmarks, positioning a patient correctly and comfortably, for the making of radiographic exposures.
Many structures of the body are radiopaque (impenetrable by x-ray). Others can be made so. These are the structures that are of primary interest, and the area of primary emphasis in this course. Thus, this course is not a broad introductory course in anatomy. Rather, it makes several assumptions, that you, the reader, already have a general basic knowledge of human anatomy and physiology. This course is designed for instruction in anatomy from the special viewpoint of the x-ray specialist.
This course is part of our X-Ray and Radiology series.
Includes a questions and answers section at the end of each lesson.
Designed for iBooks with full illustrations and diagrams included.
