Abstract

The primary goal of comparative effectiveness research (CER) is to define the optimal choice among alternative diagnostic and interventional strategies for a given clinical scenario among major stakeholders in the health care system. In an era where health care decision makers are demanding greater evidence of improved patient outcomes from the use of medical technologies, musculoskeletal (MSK) imagers must be more engaged in generating quality CER. We provide an overview of CER and its expanding role in U.S. health care, the current funding environment for CER and MSK imaging, potential areas for CER in MSK radiology, and a discussion of foreseeable challenges for CER in MSK imaging.
