Blood Clot Prevention and Treatment

These measures give you information about hospitals' use of medical imaging tests (like mammograms, MRIs, and CT scans) for outpatients based on the following:

  • Protecting patients’ safety, such as keeping patients’ exposure to radiation and other risks as low as possible.
  • Following up properly when screening tests such as mammograms show a possible problem.
  • Avoiding the risk, stress, and cost of doing imaging tests that patients may not need.

The information shown here is limited to medical imaging facilities that are part of a hospital or associated with a hospital. These facilities can be inside or near the hospital, or in a different location. This information only includes medical imaging done on outpatients. Medical imaging tests done for patients who have been admitted to the hospital as inpatients aren’t included.
