This book represents an effort to document the experience of a carefully-chosen group of international surgeons, regarding the use of imaging technology in their everyday practice. The aim of this book is to help medical students and surgeons at all levels of training and practice to understand the basics of the more common imaging techniques (CT, MRI, MRCP, US, XR, radionuclide scan, etc.), including their advantages and disadvantages and their optimal use and limitations.

Following that, the application of these imaging modalities, including the most current developments, in the different fields and subspecialties of surgical practice (including, but not limited to, surgical oncology, neurosurgery, endocrine surgery breast surgery, hepatobiliary surgery, pancreatic surgery, transplantation, urology etc.) is presented in detail. What is important about this book is that it is written by an international group of surgeons who are experts in their respective fields and who offer us here their wisdom and experience, regarding what the communication between the surgeon and the radiologist should be, in order to provide these complex patients with the best possible care.

Apart from the radiological and imaging tools commonly used in current practices, future prospects and challenges regarding how imaging technology can increase surgical efficiency in the future are explored. The overall goal of this book is to help surgeons in today’s technology-driven environment have a proper understanding of the use and limitations of modern imaging techniques.
