Medical imaging provides great information and may be an essential part of your care. However it also involves tradeoffs, meaning while there are potential benefits to you, there are also potential harms. Through this site, we hope to help you understand some of the more common medical imaging tests that are available, and to understand some of the potential benefits of imaging, as well as some of the risk. One of our main goals is to help you feel confident about speaking to your health care provider to ensure you can make the best choice for you about what tests to undergo.
