Abstract

OBJECTIVE:

We propose a method of processing and displaying imaging utilization data for large populations.

CONCLUSION:

The comprehensive and finely grained picture of imaging utilization yielded by our methods is a first step toward population-based imaging utilization management. We believe that our methods for the categorization and display of imaging utilization will prove to be widely useful.
