What is Health Quality

Diagnostic Imaging


Peer review is a powerful tool with regards to quality improvement in imaging. 

For physicians who provide diagnostic imaging services, peer review can help to make better-informed decisions, reduce the likelihood of errors, and ultimately, improve service.

For patients, this means a safer experience with better results.

While peer review is currently used by some, a province-wide program for all physicians who provide diagnostic imaging services would mean an opportunity for Ontario to position itself as a global leader in the field. 

To develop this program, Health Quality Ontario gathered experts from across the system to come up with a set of recommendations. With a focus on developing a culture of quality, a peer review program could be a vital support to continuous quality improvement in imaging.
