“The extraordinary value of this book is that it enables clinicians to stay current with the newer modalities and details how to obtain the best information for the cost. This is a cost-effective addition to every clinician's library and will benefit patients by limiting their exposure to tests that may not be the most effective in substantiating a diagnosis.” -"Vincent F Carr, DO, MSA, FACC, FACP(Uniformed Services University of the Health Sciences), Doody's Review"
