Over the past several years development and refinement of medical imaging devices has occured at an exponential rate. Computed whole body tomography, grey scale ultrasonography, real time ultrasonography, radionuclide imaging with new radiopharmaceuticals, and digitized radiography are all currently available diagnostic imaging modalities. While each of these imaging techniques has certain unique advantages, the rapid development, introduction and promotion of these new diagnostic imaging modalities has infact created a crisis of plenty. Clinicians are faced with the dilemna of choosing from among the many techniques available; the most appropriate modality for a particular clinical situation often before adequate understanding of the capabilities and limitations of each imaging modality has been acquired.
