Another standard test is questioned after a study shows there is little benefit for the patient

Grant money is growing for studies examining how we spend our health care dollars. A short while back two different studies questioned the wide spread use of mammography.

As pressure grows to decrease the cost of health care more studies will question the way we conduct health care as we try to determine a value proposition for each and every test conducted.
