|Measure||Hospital Average||How this Hospital Compares|
|Abdomen CT use of contrast material||4.3% Measure: Abdomen CT use of contrast material|
Sample data was collected between 07/01/2013 and 06/30/2014
Percentage of patients who got computed tomography (CT) scans of the abdomen that were combination/double scans. If the percentage is high, it may indicate that too many patients are being given a double scan when a single scan is sufficient.
A lower percentage is better.
