Picano E. Informed consent and communication of risk from radiological and nuclear medicine examinations: how to escape from a communication inferno. In: British Medical Journal, vol. 329 (7470) pp. 849 - 851. BMJ Publishing Group Ltd, 2004.
 
 
Abstract
(English)

Picano argues that this disregard of patient autonomy is no longer acceptable and suggests a practicable way of communicating risk
