Abstract

The chapter begins by discussing the develop-ment of imaging techniques and then addresses the tremendous importance of clinical evaluation in selecting the “best” first imaging test. Issues of appropriateness based on indications and cost containment are reviewed. Imaging modalities are presented with their risks and benefits. Techniques for reducing radiation exposure and the risks of anesthesia in imaging are examined.
