Medical imaging is one of the most costly components of patient care. Data from the American College of Radiology indicates that diagnostic imaging accounts for 10 percent ($100 billion) of total annual healthcare costs¹. At least part of these staggering costs can be attributed to the fact that so many exams simply shouldn’t have to happen. In fact, researchers at the Brigham and Women’s Hospital
in Boston, MA, have estimated that a significant amount of studies—nearly 9 percent—are unnecessary or redundant².
