Call Number Ranges

Health-related materials are shelved in the "R" section of the Library of Congress classification system.

Diagnostic Medical Imaging books are located in several call number areas. For books dealing with examination & diagnosis (including radiography) look within the call number range RC 71-78.7.

Some imaging books are located in other areas of the "R" section if they deal with specific age groups (ie. pediatric imaging is found in the RJ section and fetal imaging is located in the RG's). Imaging books may also be classified according to specific regions of the body (i.e. head and neck or chest) or by body system (circulatory system or digestive system). Use the Library catalog to locate the call number areas for these types of imaging resources.

Also look for e-books and streaming videos.
