How to Treat quiz: Radiology in the geriatric patient

Relevance to General Practice

Particularly important is are the findings associated with aging and the complex co-morbidities. Similarly, geriatric radiology has become an emerging subspecialty with unique challenges. As the general population ages, general practitioners in both medicine and radiology need to acquire a skill set to deal with their aging patients.
