Detalles del libro:

Recent growth in the field of diagnostic radiology has dramatically increased the complexity of this field. Diagnostic imaging has become widely available and plays an increasing role in clinical diagnosis and therapy. However, in most practices, miscommunication between radiologists and other physicians occurs frequently mainly because physicians often are not completely familiar with the role of radiology in patient care. This misunderstanding leads to the ordering of incorrect imaging studies, duplication of orders, unnecessary requests for follow-up imaging, too many exam orders, and other problems. In addition, inappropriate use of imaging is increasing because referring clinicians are often unsure what tests to order and when. These problems are costly and can delay diagnosis and therapy (thus decreasing patient throughput) and expose patients to unnecessary ionizing radiation. Appropriateness criteria for imaging tests are available but are not widely known or easily applied by nonradiologists, who also may interpret images incorrectly. Furthermore, nonradiologists who do not have a good knowledge about radiology often cannot communicate well with radiologists.
