Diagnostic imaging is one of the most important clinical tools available to physicians and patients. However, a growing number of studies have shown that a high proportion of the studies that are performed are not clinically appropriate. At an average cost per test of $500 to $700 for Medicare members and $600 to $900 for commercial health plan members, the costs of inappropriate imaging are staggering.
