Racial and Ethnic Differences in Diagnostic Imaging Utilization During Adult Emergency Department Visits in the United States, 2005 to 2014
We examined race (white, black, Asian, other) and ethnicity (Hispanic versus non-Hispanic) as the primary exposures for the outcomes of ED medical imaging use (XR, CT, ultrasound, MRI, and any imaging). We controlled for other potential patient-level and facility-level determinants of ED imaging use.ResultsApproximately half (48.8%) of the 225,037 adult patient ED visits underwent imaging; 36.1% underwent XR, 16.4% CT, 4.1% ultrasound, and 0.8% MRI. White patients received imaging during 51.3% of their encounters, black patients received imaging during 43.6% of their encounters, Asians received imaging during 50.8% of thei...
