"Ah.... but it's certain that there somewhere existed some (government-funded and influenced) "evidence-based" studies that established guidelines and diagnostic algorithms where radiologic imaging wasn't cost-effective (so to speak). "

England has run out of money for diagnostic machines. You have a long waiting time....for 'routine stuff' other than emergencies like car accidents....

Canada is in the same boat,with months long waiting times for an MRI. THere are more MRI machines in some cities in the US than in all of Canada. Probably a few too hospitals have 'envy' and every one wants their own department and machines regardless of the cost.
