Manual of radiographic technique / by T. Holm, P. E. S. Palmer, E. Lehtinen
AbstractA manual developed for use in training operators of the WHO Basic Radiological System (BRS) unit, an inexpensive X-ray installation developed by six manufacturers in keeping with WHO specifications. The unit, which is easy to operate and to repair, produces high quality radiographs sufficient for at least 80% of the examinations needed at a university hospital. The manual offers step-by-step instructions for all phases of technical operation of the BRS unit. Readers are guided in the position of the tube, choice of cassette and its placement, collimation of the X-ray beam, and the setting of kV and mAs values. Instructions also cover the correct positioning of the patient and the proper appearance of the finished radiograph. The 100 projections featured were selected as representing virtually all radiological investigations required in a small hospital or primary care facility
