-- The AHRA has released results from its 2017 survey on the use of computed radiography (CR) and digital radiography (DR): It found that 75% of responding AHRA members still have one to five CR units in their departments, despite 2016 federal legislation that cut reimbursement for CR exams. The survey sheds light on AHRA member patterns in response to the Consolidated Appropriations Act of 2016, which included provisions that gave providers incentives for transitioning to a DR environment.
