Abstract

Due to the rapid advances in diagnostic imaging methods, clinicians must be constantly updated about the indications, contraindications and limitations of each method. Such advances do not obviate the need for history-taking, clinical examination and laboratory investigations. The relevant information and findings, along with suspected diagnosis, must be included on the request card for the radiologist to organize the most appropriate test; one must consider if imaging is necessary and whether the results will affect management before such requests are made.
