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.

Also has all of the revised positions and expanded instructions (with suggested technical factors) included in the previous release.
Ratings and Reviews
Excellent for RT students!
I have never written a review for an app, but I must say this one is so worth the $25 if you are an RT student in clinic. Not only have I found it to be an easily accessible way to study positioning details for coursework review and clinicals, it is much faster and succinct than any technique books I have seen. Very good app, and easy to use!
Great app, worth the price
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.
Essential for Students
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 😊
