Appropriateness of Care Program: Update on Medical Imaging Lumbar Spine Checklists

30-May-2018

Ordering of tests improved

The provincial Appropriateness of Care (AC) program team would like to provide you with this update on ongoing work in Medical Imaging, specific to ordering Lumbar Spine MRIs and CTs. For the past few years we have been working with a "Clinical Development Team" of clinical experts, as well as Medical Imaging operational leaders to improve ordering of these 2 specific tests, by applying the AC framework methodology.
