This chapter gives an overview of the role of radiological investigations in the management and work-up of common clinical conditions across a spectrum of specialties. It also provides an insight into basic interpretation skills and pitfalls when approaching common radiological tests. In addition to providing an evidence-based approach to the utilization of radiological resources, differential diagnoses are provided throughout. Where appropriate, indications and contraindications for radiological techniques are given to provide an essential bedside resource for the practising clinician. More advanced sections tackle the physics underlying each modality, as well as specialized interventional radiology and its role in minimally invasive clinical practice.
