Curbing the Use of Medical Imaging: Searching for Efficient Technology Utilization in a Fee-for-Service World

Award Year: 2007 Investigator: Frank Levy
High-tech diagnostic imaging equipment is now available in hospitals, imaging centers, large multi-specialty group practices, and more types of doctors' offices than ever before. While this has made things easier for physicians and patients, it has also produced rapid growth in medical expenditures for scans and contributed to the overall rise in U.S. health care spending.
