U.K. acts to cut inappropriate imaging referrals

2017 01 26 12 32 44 153 Check Mark 400

A new referral tool is being developed to ensure general practitioners (GPs) in the U.K. select the most appropriate scan in a request made to a radiology department, according to an article published on 12 November in Pulse.

Guidelines for the tool will be issued by the Royal College of Radiologists, and it will be used across England. Use of the tool will not be mandatory for GPs, but it will be embedded in the system to support referrals, the report stated.
