What Role Can Radiology Play in Reducing Healthcare Costs

It is very rare that a patient is admitted to a hospital and the physician does not order any kind of imaging study. Radiology is important for the timely and appropriate management of nearly every major disease area from Orthopedics to Gastroenterology to Oncology; and so it can play a central role in reducing healthcare costs.

Advanced Digital Technology: With use of cutting edge digital technology such as digital X-rays, exam times can be shortened, recalls reduced, ionization exposure reduced, and image storage costs reduced.

Better Collaboration with Experts: Hospitals and clinics can collaborate with radiology experts in remote locations combining the capabilities of state-of-the-art radiology equipment with data sharing and telemedicine services for obtaining or confirming diagnosis and customized treatment planning. Receiving the right treatment at the right time can significantly lower healthcare costs.

Improved Patient Comfort: Advanced design of the radiology equipment such as the latest MRI scanning machines provide a high degree of comfort for patients leading to very high-quality images every time. This reduces the need for repeat imaging studies and improves patient satisfaction.

Seamless Access to Imaging Studies: Radiology is primarily based on technology whether viewing, interpreting, or communicating the results of the imaging studies. With patient and provider portals, you always have access to the imaging studies. At Houston MRI®, we invest in technology to provide a more efficient and cost-effective experience for the patients and healthcare providers.
