Abstract

We emphasize the fact that a thorough clinical examination with history taking is a necessary prelude to the selection of a diagnostic imaging procedure. This is the only way that we can “tailor” the diagnostic approach to the individual patient. The following evaluation and recommendation for a staged application of imaging procedures is marked by our personal experience with these modalities. To follow this scheme effectively, it is necessary to have a fully equipped radiology department with facilities for sonography, computed tomography, and angiography on a “round-the-clock” basis.
