Abstract

In the era of value-based health care, adding value is a key element in providing care. The choice of appropriate imaging modality and protocol should be based on consideration of patients' values, health care outcomes, and cost-effectiveness, taking into account the perspective of the decision maker, the health care system, and society at large. This article provides an overview of the available tools to measure value, outcomes, and cost-effectiveness in musculoskeletal radiology, illustrated with relevant examples.
