Riassunto analitico
One of the main targets of criticism from the National Health System (NHS) is the diagnostic appropriateness: it is estimated that it causes a cost increasement of 30 %. <br>Furthermore, an inappropriate exams request leads to negative consequences to the patient, such as exceeded radiation exposure, treatment time wasted during pointless examinations and extends the waiting lists. <br>To address this problem, the American College of Radiology (ACR) and the European Society of Radiology (ESR) have collaborated for creating a Clinical Decision Support system (CDS) called iGuide. <br>The iGuide is a software which allows reasonable prescription of imaging diagnostic exams according to the guidelines elaborated by the ACR and the ESR.<br>The software, considering the clinical context, can provide the level of appropriateness (Evidence-Based) of a diagnostic procedure, an estimate of the radiation exposure and also of the cost.<br>
