Clinical Pharmacology and Practical Prescribing on the Move
CRC Press – 2014 – 320 pages
Series: Medicine on the Move
This book is the companion volume to Clark's Positioning in Radiography. It focuses on special imagining procedures and techniques and interventional procedures. Bringing together conventional contrast media studies, computed tomography, ultrasound, magnetic resonance imaging, radionuclide imaging including PET, SPECT CT and PET MRI, and digital interventional procedures into one volume, it is an essential resource for students of radiography and radiographer assistant trainees. The book discusses why procedures are carried out in terms of the indications for justification under IRMER 2000 procedures and any NICE or other medical referral guidelines such as the Map of Medicine.
