RAYUS Quality Institute Clinical Guidelines

The purpose of the RAYUS Quality Institute clinical guidelines is to promote quality and continuity, where appropriate for medical practices within the RAYUS national network, and to provide relevant and up to date background information to support the development of policies within each individual practice.

The guidelines are a summary and distillation of relevant literature and subspecialty guidelines and are not considered policy. Guidelines should be adjusted for local standards of care, associated hospital or network policies, hospital versus outpatient settings, different patient populations and your own risk tolerance. Guidelines should also be modified to account for new information or publications that become available between revisions. This set of guidelines is being shared by the Institute with the permission of Medical Scanning Consultants, PA.
