But at the end of the day most doctors have to take care of the patients so you want to know specific information about the disease and you can look in the introduction of this book to see which modality is appropriate."

This book describes a new subspeciality that we will all need in the future: the imaging doctor, who can communicate with clinicians and help them resolve diagnostic dilemmas by choosing the correct technique and interpreting images using a patient-based approach.
