Towards the appropriate use of diagnostic imaging

Lizbeth M Kenny, Stacy K Goergen and Catherine J Mandel
Med J Aust 2007; 187 (8): 473-474.
Published online: 15 October 2007

To the Editor: The views of Mendelson and Murray1 regarding inappropriate use of diagnostic imaging and how it might be reduced are timely and important. Unless governments, doctors, the medical imaging industry and consumers acknowledge the significant barriers to Mendelson and Murray’s proposed changes, the number of inappropriate tests will grow.
