Diagnostic Imaging and Radiology in Physiotherapy

Editor(s): Andreas Christe, Johannes Heverhagen, Dominik Sieroń
Contributors: Dominih Seou, KUKASZ Mazurek;

Book Description

Imaging diagnostics is now becoming an important and indispensable element of qualifications for physiotherapy and planning the process of physiotherapy and rehabilitation. It is a valuable complement to, and sometimes the basis for, tests or designation of various goals of physiotherapy. It is also the basis of any knowledge about the skilful and reliable use of selected methods of physiotherapy.

This volume addresses the need of the moment regarding the lack of comprehensive studies across the globe concerning the use of imaging diagnostics in the physiotherapy process. It will not only contribute to a more complete functional assessment of the patient in comprehensive physiotherapy processes, but will also be the basis for the emergence of a diagnostic standard in the treatment of the patient. This is all the more important because the ever-increasing independence of the physiotherapist’s profession is burdened with huge, progressive responsibility.
