7Contributors 11Preface
The advancement in Radiology and subspecialties over a period of two decades has tremendously enhanced this course and in-depth knowledge of Image interpretation. This is particularly true in a developing country like ours where still majority of Radiologists practices in broader specialty and it is not always feasible to update the knowledge because of paucity of time and availability of literature/newer books at all places. However, interpretation of any radiograph is extremely essential for radiologist to arrive at a correct diagnosis keeping in view of various salient features of disease entity on various imaging modalities and to exclude other similar looking pictures. Thus it is more important for a trainee radiologist and radiologist in practice to have a book which should be and valuable primer and also the concise and handy reference to use in day-to-day practice. An attempt has been made to list out as many as important condition possible, enumerated their salient features and important differential diagnosis so as to arrive at a particular diagnosis.
