  1. Economic assessment of magnetic resonance imaging for inpatients: is it still too early?

    Article - En anglais

    This economic assessment of the implementation of magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) in a French hospital examines data on the diagnostic resources used in neurology and neurosurgery before and after MRI was available.

    Given a similar patient population and case mix, there was no change in the resources used other than the addition of MRI.

    So far, MRI appears to be a complement to, and not a substitute for, other imaging techniques used in neuroradiology.

    The focus of this work is purely economic; its conclusions do not challenge the major scientific contributions of MRI.
