About this Unit
Evidence based imaging is a foundation tool that ensures patients are referred to pertinent modalities for tests of high sensitivity and specificity while fostering a cognisance to the harm of investigations such as the low sensitivity of certain modalities to certain investigations, radiation effects and the societal costs of the health budget. This core unit will enable health professionals with an understanding of the best evidence based diagnostic algorithm “pathway” for the different clinical presentations. In conjunction with the radiobiology unit, this will also equip clinicians with the knowledge to better evaluate the risk versus benefit for any examination requested.
