This latest volume in the Current Clinical Imaging series offers all professionals involved with imaging a cogent, concise discussion of major issues related to health care reform from the perspective of fellow imaging specialists. It provides radiologists with a solid footing in understanding where they are now and where they can expect to be in the evolution of health care reform over the next ten years.
Presenting an excellent balance of clinical and health care policy issues, Health Care Reform in Radiology reinforces the central role of health promotion and preventive medicine in U.S. health care systems while offering an international perspective on the subject. Topical coverage includes evidence-based outcomes for health care delivery, the impact of the determination of imaging tests’ effectiveness, patient safety, medicolegal reform, reimbursement issues, and universal healthcare benefits and challenges.
Health Care Reform in Radiology presents a program to:
Enhance patient safety and quality of care
Anticipate new or revised standards for all imaging modalities
Suggest the more appropriate use of imaging based on the latest clinical evidence
Discuss the evolving regulations defining the training required to perform imaging procedures
Encourage career-long learning (CME, maintenance of certification, etc.)
Show fellow radiologists how to provide added value for patients and referring physicians
Developed and written by two top experts in the field, this is an ideal book for all professionals involved with imaging as well as physician groups that depend on radiology.

Few fields have witnessed such impressive advances as the application of computer technology to radiology. Post-processing and 3D reconstruction of diagnostic images are essential for the representation of complex anatomical structures and for an understanding of pathological changes in terms of both morphology and function. The progress achieved has greatly facilitated treatment selection and accurate planning of procedures. This book, written by leading experts from many different countries, provides a comprehensive and up-to-date overview of the role of 3D image processing. The first section covers a wide range of technical aspects in an informative way. This is followed by the main section, in which the principal clinical applications are described and discussed in depth. To complete the picture, the final section focuses on recent developments in functional imaging and computer-aided surgery. This book will prove invaluable to all who have an interest in this complex but vitally important field.
