This paper aims to define exactly what information is produced by radionuclide, ultrasound and CT scanning in the various diseases affecting the thyroid, liver, pancreas, kidneys and pelvic organs. The advantages and limitations of the different types of non invasive investigations will be stressed. At times there has been less emphasis on the actual contribution made by these tests, the choice depending more upon availability and their relative cost. However now that the tests are becoming more generally available and that personnel with increased experience are on hand to carry them out, there is a need for a more careful evaluation of the actual information obtainable from a particular test and how far this information can be used to give a definite diagnosis.
