Dependency of clinicians and surgeons on imaging studies for primary evaluation of patients and also for follow up of them, significantly increased in recent years, parallel to advances in imaging methods and new imaging modalities. Regarding to these tips, it is important that we can use new concepts in conducting imaging to fulfill new requirements of clinicians and then provide sufficient data in our reports to answer their questions about the patient disease. Here I try to discuss different imaging modalities in evaluation of patients and how to design and conduct protocols to meet our needs in this era. Presentation of appropriate cases better shows the goal of this lecture.

This is an abstract presented in the 33rd Iranian congress of radiology (ICR) and the 15th congress of Iranian radiographic science association (IRSA).
