Do you need help finding information on a specific topic? In addition to using our face-to-face, online and phone Ask A Librarian options, you may call or email me to set up an appointment or to explain what you need (I can often help you via email). Please remember that while I can assist you in finding information and can educate you about locating and citing quality health resources, I cannot diagnose or recommend treatment for specific conditions or diseases. I also cannot interpret assignments--ask your instructor! I will always refer specific medical and assignment-related questions back to your health care provider or instructor. Your questions will be kept in confidence and your privacy will be respected.

Handouts

Diagnostic Imaging Special Reserve Collection

thumb_ultrasound.JPGThis collection of "Best Bets" for Sonography, Radiography, Nuclear Medical Technology, and Radiation Therapy student projects is located on a cart at the Upstairs (3rd floor) Reference Desk. These books are examples of general imaging books as well as books on specific imaging modalities (i.e. CT, Ultrasound). Some of the books target specific patient populations (i.e. fetal or pediatric), while other books target specific areas of the body (i.e. head & neck or cardiac). Search for your specific disease or condition in the index located at the back of each text. While these books should answer most student questions, there are many other imaging books located in the General collection. Use the Library catalog or seek help from Reference staff members to locate additional resources.
