appropriate utilization of healthcare resources can be reduced by giving feedback to practitioners."

In research published last year, Dr. Makarov found that the use of inappropriate prostate cancer imaging in the United States tends to vary greatly from one part of the country to the nextfrom 62% among New Jersey patients to just 22% for those in Utah. "Whether or not you are imaged in the United States seems to depend as much on where you live as on the characteristics of your disease," he said.

Instituting a Swedish-style awareness-raising campaign at urological conferences could result in more uniform and appropriate imaging rates in the United States, suggests Dr. Makarov. He also notes that The NPCR collaborates with county-level authorities to set the policy agenda and implement best practices. "Encouraging medical professional societies in the United States to collaborate with the government is another possible strategy to explore," he suggests.
