Abstract :

In this presentation, the author considers the work of Fryback and Thornbury and challenges radiologists to rethink their contribution to diagnostic workup of patients. She uses Fryback and Thornbury�??s hierarchal model of efficacy to shed new light on the technical quality of images; the interpretation of imaging with regards to diagnostic accuracy, sensitivity, and specificity; diagnostic thinking; patient care management planning; patient outcomes; and societal costs and benefits.
