Analysis was performed of hospital revenue generated by inpatient, outpatient and emergency department MR and CT angiographic examinations for suspected pulmonary embolism. Negative examinations generated less revenue than examinations positive for pulmonary embolism. Negative MRAs generated slightly more revenue than negative CTAs. Positive MRAs generated more revenue than positive CTAs, however only two MRAs were positive for pulmonary embolism.
