  1. I am a Radiologist and at this moment am reading a Lower Extremity Doppler exam which made me think of yesterday’s show. While a person getting information on Pulse Wave Velocity readings would usually be pretty innocuous and possibly helpful, it could also be pretty detrimental. A big problem in medical imaging is unnecessary further testing . This can simply mean wasted money, but could also mean a patient getting invasive exams and procedures for something for which the patient never had symptoms. I can easily see a patient’s primary care physician getting presented with this data, then feeling obliged to order a truly diagnostic ultrasound which shows findings. Then the patient is sent to a vascular specialist for more tests and possible intervention. All because the bathroom scale said something even though the patient never truly had any complaints and possibly never would.
