Radiology has been transformed by new imaging advances and a greater demand for imaging, along with a much lower tolerance for error as part of the Quality & Safety revolution in healthcare. With a greater emphasis on patient safety and quality in imaging practice, imaging specialists are increasingly charged with ensuring patient safety and demonstrating that everything done for patients in their care meets the highest quality and safety standards. This book offers practical guidance on understanding, creating, and implementing quality management programs in Radiology. Chapters are comprehensive, detailed, and organized into three sections: Core Concepts, Management Concepts, and Educational & Special Concepts. Discussions are applicable to all practice settings: community hospitals, private practice, academic radiology, and government/military practice, as well as to those preparing for the quality and safety questions on the American Board of Radiology's "Maintenance of Certification" or initial Board Certification Examinations. Bringing together the various elements that comprise the quality and safety agenda for Radiology, this book serves as a thorough roadmap and resource for radiologists, technicians, and radiology managers and administrators.

ADAPTIVE RADIOGRAPHY WITH TRAUMA, IMAGE CRITIQUE, AND CRITICAL THINKING, 1st Edition gives you a fresh perspective on radiographic positioning and critiquing in the real world. Unlike most radiography books, which approach topics in terms of the average patient under near ideal conditions, this text offers strategies and helpful tricks of the trade to employ when “the usual” does not apply. Based on developing adaptive thinking skills, the book shows you how to consider the paradigms and rules of radiology, examining and quantifying those that work while challenging those that don’t. Thorough discussions on adapting beam angles, beam divergence, expansion of the light field, and spacial relations in positioning deliver the foundations of radiography and introduce quantifiable, repeatable methods. ADAPTIVE RADIOGRAPHY WITH TRAUMA, IMAGE CRITIQUE, AND CRITICAL THINKING, 1st Edition also addresses trauma and mobile radiography and positioning, changes brought about by the advent of digital radiography, routine and trauma skull positioning, and much more. Real-life case studies and critical thinking questions help you apply methods to a variety of issues and clinical settings, developing the problem-solving skills you need for success in any radiographic field.

Avedis Donabedian's name is synonymous with quality of medical care. He unraveled the mystery behind the concept by defining it in clear operational terms and provided detailed blueprints for both its measurement(known as quality assessment) and its improvement(known as quality assurance). Many before him claimed that quality couldn't be defined in concrete objective terms. He demonstrated that quality is an attribte of a system which he called structure, a set of organized activities whihc he called process, and an outcome which results from both. In this book Donabedian tells the full story of quality assessment and assurance in simple, clear terms. He defines the meaning of quality, explicates its components, and provides clear and systematic guides to its assessment and enhancement. His style is lucid, succinct, systematic and yet personal, almost conversational.
