You are here: Value of Medical Imaging

With the cost of healthcare making daily headlines, it’s important to remember that ensuring patient access to the right scan at the right time produces cost savings and healthier, more productive workers. Many times, these savings are easily recognizable, such as when medical imaging technology prevents unnecessary surgery. Other times, these savings are not as obvious, as when imaging allows a patient to return to work sooner due to a quicker recovery.

While it is clear that diagnostic imaging has revolutionized disease screening in ways that improve clinical outcomes and reduce costs, it is a fact sometimes lost in debate. As Congress begins to develop new laws, it is more important than ever that we help them understand the vital role of medical imaging in today’s health care system and that the medical imaging community has already taken actions to reduce health care costs.

Here are just a few of the many ways to leverage the full potential of medical imaging by ensuring its appropriate and effective use, without compromising patients’ ability to access the right scan at the right time.
