In public health and disease prevention as well as in both therapeutic and palliative treatment, successful decisions depend on correct diagnoses. Today, the use of radiological imaging cannot be separated from medical diagnosis. The radiologist often plays a key role in patient screening, diagnosis, and follow-up. Technological innovations are opening up new diagnostic perspectives. Appropriate use of medical imaging requires a multidisciplinary approach.
