Nice post. Agree that there are many reasons why we physicians order tests with abandon. Patients like it. It keeps the office schedule moving. It offers some measure of litigation protection. We make more money. We want to feel as if we are skilled practicitioners in modern technological medicine. And,we practice excessively because this is the culture of medical practice today.
