In a proactive response to federal goverment cost-containment pressures, the radiology profession, under the leadership of the American College of Radiology (ACR), in 1988 developed a relative value scale (RVS) for radiologic procedures.
Like earlier radiology RVSs, its relative values reflected the physician work and practice costs involved in each procedure.
The RVS was constructed by using (a) three types of data (magnitude estimation, charges, and practice costs) obtained by means of surveys and (b) expert consensus patient involving participants from all fields and many organizations in radiology.
