Add to it sedentary lifestyle and rising incidences of non-communicable diseases like CVDs and arthritis, and you have a clear case for image-based diagnosis. It’s hardly surprising then that more and more physicians are depending on imaging tests to accurately diagnose and prescribe the correct course of treatment.
