Summary of Dr. Hacker’s Presentation

  • H. Hacker
Conference paper
Part of the Radiology Today book series (RADIOL.TODAY, volume 2)


Dr. Hacker stressed the point that general radiologists frequently allow themselves to be tempted into making more exact diagnoses from CT scans and other specialized imaging procedures then would be attempted even by neuroradiologists. He emphasized that precision of diagnosis is best attained by serious specialization; generalists usually lack the knowledge to make highly specific statements on anatomy and pathology. In essence, Dr. Hacker strongly supports Alexander Pope’s famous words “A little knowledge is a dangerous thing.”
