The Associated Press looks at fears of lawsuits leading to overtesting in the latest of its series. Excerpt:

“Fast decisions on life-and-death cases are the bread and butter of hospital emergency rooms. Nowhere do doctors face greater pressures to overtest and overtreat.”

The AP now offers a multimedia interactive that allows you to scroll over body parts that have become key foci of overtesting and overtreatment.

Continued congratulations to AP for devoting the time, energy and resources to these important topics.
