Radiology is a key component of value-based healthcare: a multi-society statement

Some of the most important radiological societies ihave collaborated and co-published a paper on the value contributed to healthcare by radiology, explaining also how that value may be measured, recognised and augmented. The paper was written by representatives of the European Society of Radiology (ESR), American College of Radiology (ACR), Radiological Society of North America (RSNA), Canadian Association of Radiologists (CAR), Royal Australian and New Zealand College of Radiologists (RANZCR) and International Society for Strategic Studies in Radiology (IS3R), which, together represent hundreds of thousands of radiologists worldwide.

By embracing the principles of value-based healthcare, it is believed that radiology can contribute to moving to a value-driven system, where all investigations or interventions contribute positively to patient outcomes.
