Use of Medical Imaging - Bronson LakeView Hospital
These measures compare Bronson LakeView Hospital’s use of medical imaging (tests like mammograms, MRIs and CT scans) to the national average in the outpatient setting. They are based on the following:
- Protecting patients’ safety. We want to keep patients’ exposure to radiation and other risks as low as possible.
- Following up properly when screening tests such as mammograms show a possible problem.
- Avoiding the risk, stress, and cost of doing imaging tests that patients may not need.
