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.

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 😊


Missing X-Ray films & trauma & S.I. Joints

I think the app is good but why make an app that's half done. Some X-Rays are missing, S.I Joints are missing and how about some level I trauma X-Rays?

I'm a travel X-Ray radiographer and some of these hospitals and students don't have a clue what Level I trauma X-Ray is?

There should be all aspects of diagnostic Radiology in this app especially for teaching purposes.
