It is designed to aid in the understanding of diagnostic radiographic images and the role that imaging plays in disease diagnosis. There is a dedicated chapter for each anatomical region of the body. Each chapter describes normal and abnormal findings, and correlations of the disease on MR, CT, or ultrasound. The last three chapters are an introduction to Nuclear Medicine, Mammography, and Angiography, the benefits to these modalities, and the important role of each.
