This topic has crucial importance in terms of not only reveal many pathologic conditions but at the same time to provide an early diagnosis in malignant diseases and thus improve the patients' surveillance. In recent years, technology has shown a huge development in the medicine and therefore many imaging modalities have emerged depending on these improvements. Thus medical screening has become an important issue in the early detection of many diseases and also provided to screen normal population in order to reveal diseases in an early stage or rule out many pathologies. These modalities include ultrasonography, Doppler sonography, mammography, computed tomography, magnetic resonance imaging, PET imaging, etc. These modalities are currently being used in medicine and have crucial importance in the diagnosis of many diseases. Also, they provide screening of normal patients who do not have any complaints of diseases. In this book, we tried to emphasize the importance of medical screening in the early detection and evaluation of various diseases.
