About this book

Owing to financial constraints, greater pressure is being put on physicians to order only appropriate radiologic exams. The American College of Radiology (ACR) Appropriateness Criteria have emerged as a widely accepted standard by which the appropriate use of radiologic exams is judged. This book enables physicians and trainees to learn the ACR recommendations in a clinically relevant and intellectually stimulating way. More than 400 clinical scenarios are organized into ten modules based on organ systems. Each scenario is addressed by means of an interactive quiz in which the reader is invited to select the best option from various imaging modalities. Each choice is given a numerical rating of appropriateness, with accompanying comments when necessary. Correlative images of pathologies are included to enhance the reader’s appreciation of the diagnostic power of the modality in question. This book is ideal as a tool both for self-study and for quantitative evaluation of students’ knowledge.

Reviews

From the reviews:

“Using a case-based approach, this book is a guide to selecting the appropriate imaging for different clinical scenarios. … The intended audience includes general medical practitioners, but this book may be more appropriate for those earlier in their training, such as medical students or residents. … This book does a good job of presenting many clinical situations and allowing readers to consider the most appropriate imaging test before giving the American College of Radiology Appropriateness Criteria. The case-based approach makes reading the book more interesting.” (Maria Kristine Goertz, Doody’s Book Reviews, February, 2014)

“This compact and concise text aims to provide the reader with the knowledge and skills to choose the most appropriate diagnostic imaging test when presented with a wide range of clinical scenarios. … this book would make a welcome addition to the libraries of many general practitioners. I believe that it would serve both as an instructive text as well as an excellent reference text in dealing with day-to-day clinical scenarios as many common presentations and their appropriate images are included within.” (Chris Hegarty, Radiology, Vol. 269 (3), December, 2013)

“It has been written as a guide to aid correct investigation requests in common clinical scenarios. … The additional materials alone would make this book stand out from its peers but the layout, high quality images and thoughtful case selection make it an excellent resource. … an excellent resource for medical students/junior doctors and allied health practitioners who have requesting rights.” (Andrew J. Cumming, RAD Magazine, April, 2013)
