The use of medical imaging measures at De Queen Medical Center, Inc display information about the quality of outpatient care in the area of imaging tests like mammograms, MRIs and CT scans. The measures on the use of medical imaging help patients identify how often a hospital provides imaging tests under circumstances where they may not be medically appropriate. The medical imaging ratings are based solely on Medicare administrative claims and hospitals do no provide additional information.
A lower percentage in the use of medical imaging test might be an indication of a more efficient use of medical imaging and Medicare resources. This is important because less imaging tests means less exposure to contrast materials or radiation. These measures are only applicable to hospital outpatient departments.
