Footnotes

2If a number is high, it may mean the facility is doing too many unnecessary MRIs for low back pain.
3 A number that is much lower than 8% may mean there's not enough Mammogram follow-up. A number much higher than 14% may mean there's too much unnecessary follow-up after a screening Mammogram.
4 The range for this measure is 0 to 1. A number very close to 1 may mean that too many patients are being given a double abdominal CT scan (with and without contrast) when a single scan is all they need.
5 The range for this measure is 0 to 1. A number very close to 1 may mean that too many patients are being given a double Thorax CT scan (with and without contrast) when a single scan is all they need.
