About this book

This book is a concise guide to ordering radiology tests for diagnosis and treatment and provides best practice guidelines for patients whose management depends on a clinical question that is best approached through imaging. Organized primarily by organ system, it outlines considerations in selecting the most efficacious imaging studies based on the clinical history, laboratory values, and physical findings to arrive cost-effectively at a correct diagnosis. It also explores the current limitations of each imaging modality and presents evidence-based information to insure that patient safety considerations are observed when ordering potentially dangerous examinations. Clinician’s Guide to Diagnostic Imaging is a valuable resource for all physicians who regularly order imaging studies, including primary care physicians, family practitioners, internists, and surgeons alike. Further, this volume serves as an invaluable reference for medical students who are exposed to medical imaging for their first time or who are rotating through a radiology elective in medical school.

Reviews

From the reviews:

“This book is designed to help clinicians choose the most informative imaging studies for their patients when faced with many overlapping imaging possibilities. … This will be a tremendous help to clinicians who request imaging studies to guide them in the choice of the best study for diagnostic accuracy and cost-effectiveness. The field of imaging is rapidly changing, and this book offers extremely valuable insight to the newer technologies.” (Vincent F. Carr, Doody’s Book Reviews, February, 2014)
