- Positioning challenges in mammography. [Journal Article]
- Radiol Technol 2014 Mar-Apr; 85(4):417-39M; quiz 440-3M.
Patients presenting for mammography are different ages and sizes and have varying body habitus; they include men, those who arrive on a stretcher or in a wheelchair, and those with very small breasts, large or wide breasts, pectus excavatum or pectus carinatum, a barrel chest, or kyphosis. The true professional must know how to image patients who deviate from the norm. In addition to competent positioning skills and anatomical knowledge, the mammographer needs a thorough knowledge of the various projections and the skills to modify any projection to meet the needs of individual patients.

- Imaging's insights into human violence. [Journal Article]
- Radiol Technol 2014 Mar-Apr; 85(4):417-41; quiz 442-4.
Following every well-publicized act of incomprehensible violence, the news media rush to interview neighbors, family members, and experts in an attempt to discover what could have led an individual to commit such a barbarous act. Certain stock answers are reiterated: video games, bullying, violent films, mental illness, the availability of guns, and a society that is increasingly both anonymous and callous. Might imaging be one of the more valuable keys to unlocking the mysteries of violent, aggressive people? This article explores these questions and their complex answers in the context of violent individuals.
- Multiple myeloma and diagnostic imaging. [Journal Article]
- Radiol Technol 2014 Mar-Apr; 85(4):391-410; quiz 411-3.
Multiple myeloma is the most common primary bone cancer among U.S. adults aged 70 years and older, and the incidence of the disease is increasing. Despite significant advances in treatment since the 1960s, multiple myeloma remains a challenging disease to diagnose and treat. Several medical diagnostic imaging examinations play important roles. This article reviews the biological basis of multiple myeloma, clinical features and diagnosis of the disease, and imaging and treatment protocols. The article also discusses unusual presentations of multiple myeloma.
- Imaging professionals' views of social media and its implications. [Journal Article]
- Radiol Technol 2014 Mar-Apr; 85(4):377-89.
To help radiation sciences students and professionals understand the implications of and best practices for personal postings on social media Web sites.The authors conducted a survey to capture radiologic science professionals' opinions regarding trends related to using social media for employment, as well as for their personal use.The majority of imaging professionals are mindful of their privacy settings and believe their activity on social media sites reflects on them professionally.Participants in this study noted they maintain high privacy settings. In spite of this, both supervisors and nonsupervisors in this study held opinions about the use of social media in employment decisions that are inconsistent with what can occur in the workplace. Survey respondents did not believe there should be employment sanctions for behaviors that routinely are sanctioned in the workplace.An important message that has emerged from this research is that employees should not only adhere to the strictest privacy settings on their personal social media sites, but they also should be judicious in what they choose to share, with the understanding that nothing posted online is truly private. Supervisors and nonsupervisors should become familiar with their institutional policies regarding the use of social media in the workplace, and supervisors specifically should ensure that they follow institutional policy regarding the use of social media in employment decisions.
