Bontrager Handbook PDF Book Description

Kenneth Bontrager wrote the first version of this pocket handbook in 1994. It was written in response to the need that students and technologists had for a more complete but still useful pocket guide to radiographic positioning and techniques.

Today, this small, durable, pocket-sized handbook has a review of all the common imaging procedures, but it is still small enough to be carried easily in clinical situations. There’s enough room to write down your notes, and there are exposure factors that technologists say are best for certain pieces of equipment or in certain rooms or departments.

A lot of work has been done to ensure that the information about positioning in the Bontrager text is correct in the handbook.
For each projection/position, there are descriptions of positioning and photos, as well as CR locations, degrees of tilt, specific CR angles, AEC cell locations, patient shielding, and suggested kV ranges for both analog and digital systems.

By quickly reviewing this information before starting a procedure, you can ensure the exam is done right and avoid having to do it again because of bad positioning or wrong exposure factors.
