About this book

Continuous technical developments have improved the potential of organ-based radiological diagnostics and have now also led to the use of dedicated whole-body examinations in the field of screening and preventive diagnosis. This book aims to provide clinicians with a broad understanding of screening and preventive diagnosis using radiological imaging. The first part of the book is dedicated to the fundamentals of screening and preventive diagnosis, and comprises chapters on epidemiology and pathology, technical and organizational aspects of radiological screening, legal and ethical issues, and cost-benefit analysis. The second part of the book discusses in depth the most important practical examples of radiological screening and surveillance, both for unselected populations and for individual risk groups.

Reviews

From the reviews:

"This is an ambitious book that seeks to report on the current status of screening, covering the latest innovations in imaging. … This book would be worthwhile for those involved in public health decisions regarding coverage for screening imaging services as well as referring doctors confused about which imaging studies should be ordered for a healthy screening population. The book covers fundamentals of screening, including epidemiology and statistics, and pathology." (Edward I Bluth, Doody’s Review Service, April, 2008)

"This multi-authored book is an extremely useful and timely contribution to the radiology literature. … The book covers clinical, pathological, statistical and ethical issues in addition to the technical aspects of screening itself. As such it will be a valuable addition to many department libraries and will be read profitably not just by interested radiologists, but also clinical colleagues who are involved in screening patients. … I can highly recommend it to all readers." (Dr Arpan K Banerjee, RAD Magazine, June, 2008)
