The field of radiology has significant clinical applications in the daily practice of anesthesiology. Great advances in technology have bolstered the ability to diagnose and treat disease not otherwise seen by the naked eye. It is not only in the diagnosis of pathology but also in the assessment of interventions undertaken by the anesthesiologist that allows various imaging modalities to play a critical part in perioperative patient care. Whether it’s diagnosing a pneumothorax, confirming endotracheal tube position, or performing a peripheral nerve block, it is crucial that the anesthesiologist have a thorough understanding of core radiology concepts. This chapter reviews the fundamental principles of radiology relating to perioperative application.
