Diagnostic Imaging principles and concepts are augmented by the presentation of images for common clinical conditions. Guiding principles related to minimizing radiation exposure and requesting the most appropriate imaging examination are addressed.Static images are enhanced by the ability to access images stored and displayed on an Html-5 compatible, Dicom image viewer that simulates a simple Picture Archive and Communication system (PACS). Users can also access other imaging from the Dicom viewer (ODIN), beyond the basic curriculum provided, to further advance their experience with viewing diagnostic imaging pathologies.This book is also available in three other digital formats: ePUB (for Nook, iBooks, Kobo etc.), PDF (regular print), PDF (large print).

The provision of northern health care entails many unique challenges and circumstances that are rarely represented in mainstream health sciences education. This open access, online resource consists of 38 short chapters from a variety of experts, academics, and practitioners in northern and Indigenous health and health care from around the Circumpolar North  on the following themes:

  • Health issues in northern and Indigenous communities
  • Health systems and governance
  • The social determinants of health in northern and Indigenous communities
  • Culture and health
  • Professional practice in rural/remote/isolated communities

The learning objectives for this OpenEd textbook include:

  • Understanding the unique healthcare needs and professional responsibilities that result from remoteness and population sparsity;
  • Identifying the social, environmental and cultural aspects of a community that inform and impact care needs;
  • Appreciating traditional and Indigenous medicines and approaches to healing as part of a holistic care system; and
  • Exploring the similarities and differences in northern health care across the circumpolar region.
