about

Economics of Diagnostic Imagingaddresses the concepts that are needed to answer questions on topics such as how much to pay for diagnostic testing, how many tests are too many from a physician's perspective, do they cause harm, and whether or not patients need an MRI before a laboratory test. The essential focus of the book is to help readers recognize when one diagnostic test is better than the other and when more information does not help. It provides an essential resource for radiologists, diagnostic pathologists, and health policy researchers involved in medical decision modeling, evidence-based medicine, precision medicine, public health, and health economics.



  • Interrelates economic evaluation and diagnostic imaging
  • Instructs healthcare professionals and researchers on economic evaluation in diagnostic imaging
  • Introduces economic evaluation to diagnostic radiologists, pathologists, and researchers
  • Serves as an essential resource for radiologists, diagnostic pathologists, and health policy researchers involved in medical decision modeling, evidence-based medicine, precision medicine, public health, and health economics
Dr. Jha is a radiologist who studies the value of imaging. He has a master's degree in health policy from the prestigious Leonard Davis Institute of the University of Pennsylvania, studying health economics, statistics, behavioral economics, decision analysis, technology assessment and outcome research.Dr. Jha runs the economics curric...
