About this book

This book offers a thorough, clear and practical guide to identifying, preventing and correcting any error or bias that may arise during the interpretation and reporting of medical images. It combines information and insights from the fields of radiology, expertise theory, cognitive psychology, and advanced learning practices with the author’s considerable clinical (radiologic) experience. In addition, the book features an extensive “Teaching Cases Section” that simulates real-world situations, giving readers an opportunity to practice what they have just learned.

The purpose of the book is to provide readers with essential information and strategies, and to point out the deficiencies of the current radiology education system, in order to minimize the occurrence and the clinical impact of errors in imaging by offering the proper education and training for imaging professionals.

It offers a valuable guide for diagnostic radiologists and all other imaging professionals, whether in training or in practice. Though the main emphasis is on computed tomography and magnetic resonance, the general principles are applicable to all conventional imaging modalities. 

About the authors

Haris Chrysikopoulos was born in Corfu, Greece in 1961. He graduated from Washington University Medical School, St. Louis, USA in 1986 and completed his Radiology Residency at the University of California San Diego Medical Center in 1991. After being certified by the American Board of Radiology in the same year, he returned to Greece and has held positions as a Staff Radiologist at private and public (state) institutions in Athens and Corfu since 1992. Since 2006 he has been the Director of CT/MRI at the EuroDiagnosis Imaging Center in Corfu. 

He has authored several articles in Greek and major international journals, as well as the short textbook “Clinical MR Imaging and Physics: a Tutorial” (Springer). He developed an interest in radiology errors early in his career, and has since spent considerable time investigating the subject, especially in the past five years.
