Principles and Application of Radiological Physics 6E provides comprehensive and easy-to-follow coverage of the principles and application of physics for both diagnostic and therapeutic radiography students. Regardless of changes in technology and clinical grading, the most important role of the radiographer remains unchanged – ensuring the production of high quality images and optimal treatment. These should be performed with the minimum of radiation hazard to patients, staff and others. An understanding of physics and the basics of radiographic technology is essential to do this effectively. The book covers all the physics and mathematics required by undergraduate diagnostic and therapeutic radiography students, catering for those who do not have a mathematics qualification as well as for those who do.

2014-2015 Basic and Clinical Science Course (BCSC): Section 1: Update on General Medicine

Update on General Medicineby American Academy of Ophthalmology (Author), Eric P. Purdy

Covers systemic medical conditions most likely to affect ophthalmic patients, such as infectious, metabolic, neurologic and cardiovascular diseases; cancer; and rheumatic and endocrine disorders. Includes a discussion of preventive medicine and medical emergencies, geriatrics and statistics. Ophthalmic considerations are highlighted throughout. Contains references and tables listing the names, indications and side effects of antibiotic, antihypertensive and anticancer drugs.

Upon completion of Section 1, readers should be able to:

Describe the ophthalmic manifestations of major systemic diseases
Summarize the major disease processes affecting most of the adult population, and briefly explain how preventive measures may reduce the morbidity and mortality they cause
List some of the factors associated with a patient’s compliance or noncompliance with medical regimens

Clay & Pounds’ Basic Clinical Massage Therapy : Integrating Anatomy and Treatment, 3rd Edition

James H. Clay; Laura Allen; David M. Pounds
Superbly illustrated and innovative in its approach, Clay & Pounds Basic Clinical Massage Therapy, 3e, helps readers build a solid foundation in palpatory and muscle anatomy as they master clinical massage therapy techniques.

This stunningly realistic text brings the basic techniques of clinical massage therapy to life by embedding illustrations of internal structures directly into photographs of live models, allowing readers to see exactly what muscle is being worked on, where it is, where it is attached, how it can be accessed manually, what problems it can cause, and one or more techniques for effectively treating it. The result is a vivid representation of the individual muscles that are essential to understanding basic clinical massage therapy techniques.

The updated and expanded Third Edition enhances an already impressive art program with striking new photographs and adds a range of new pedagogical features, including learning objectives, case studies, and icons, to provide students with more help in mastering key concepts and skills.
