Have you had a CAT scan in your doctor's office? How about an MRI or a PET? Did your doctor talk you out of going to the hospital for your test? Have you had multiple scans in your doctor's office?
Some doctors who own imaging equipment in their offices are abusing the American Healthcare system, extracting up to $16 Billion per year in unnecessary scanning revenue. Studies show that doctors who profit from scaning in their offices order from two to eight times as many exams as they would otherwise. This practice is hurting all of us by sending healthcare costs and insurance premiums spiraling out of control.
You can make a difference. Insist on having your study done in a hospital or an independent imaging center, where no one profits from self-referral. It's your life, your body, and your money.
