There are two main types of general radiography articles that require a different set of subheadings as the usual epidemiology, clinical presentation, pathology, etc. are not relevant.
These articles describe the set of projections that make up a series that might be requested by a clinician, e.g. they would request a wrist x-ray, to get a PA and lateral view, together these are termed the series.
Each article should begin with a brief introductory sentence/paragraph, with the title of the article repeated and emboldened, followed by a number of standard subheadings:
modified trauma projections
These articles describe a specific projectional view that is obtained as part of a radiographic series.
Each article should begin with a brief introductory sentence/paragraph, followed by a number of standard subheadings:
patient position (H1)
technical factors (H1)
centering point using anatomical landmarks
collimation using anatomical landmarks
although most places are going digital and have digital detectors now, giving the basic film size will still help those who have CR
it also gives people a good idea of collimation factors, e.g. 35 x 43 cm
image technical evaluation (H1): how to tell if the view is adequate
practical points (H1): information that can be helpful when the projection is not straightforward, often information that is learnt via years of experience
