I have chosen three article for this edition of the literature highlights. What do they have in common? Nothing it would seem; certainly at the first glance. The first one deals with the cost effectiveness of cardiac imaging, the next with radiation exposures in trauma radiology and the last one, a somewhat philosophical piece about the value of Radiology on the overall care of patients. However if you look a little deeper you will realise that they are all related to the value addition that radiology brings to patient care. We all realise that Radiology has become central in the care of many (if not most) patients. However we as radiologists are not very good at taking on this central role. We abdicate this pivotal position by pretending that the primary responsibility lies with the referring physicians. I will write more on this at another time.
