Majority of PCPs assigned high value to medical imaging

January 26, 2015

The majority of primary care physicians considered access to medical imaging to be essential to patient care, indicating that it aided in establishing earlier and more definitive diagnoses, according to a recent survey.

“Advanced medical imaging constituted one of the most rapidly growing services among Medicare beneficiaries from the mid-1990s until the mid-2000s.” researcher Christine M. Hughes, BA, of the Hadley Hart Group in Chicago, and colleagues wrote. “Since 2005, however, this trend has slowed, but reductions in payment for and/or utilization of advanced imaging continue to be advocated by many policymakers. If imaging utilization has increased, likely it has been requested with increased frequency; thus, the perspectives of ordering physicians may have important policy implications.”
