Cardiology and Radiology Imaging Indications Upgraded

Cardiology and radiology imaging indications content was upgraded to meet 2021 PAMA regulations. With this upgrade:

  • Indications are streamlined for cardiology and radiology orders.
  • You’ll only receive the AUC BPA when an exam is scored at a three or lower.
  • Some indications may be retired or updated, so you may be prompted to update your personal preference list and/or order sets.
  • The acknowledgement reason question was not affected.
  • There’s a new alert for imaging guidelines, displaying “do not do” alerts with an explanation and recommendation to defer the selected advanced imaging exam.
