DIAGNOSTIC IMAGING COST MANAGEMENT
Keeping the Costs of Imaging Tests in Check
While diagnostic tests like MRIs, CT scans and PET scans have become critical to helping diagnose and treat so many medical conditions today, they have also increased in price due to such fast-growing demand. Statistics show that more than $100 billion is spent on diagnostic imaging each year. These costs are especially hard to absorb with the price discrepancy that exists … what one provider might charge for a test could be 10 times higher at another nearby facility.
