Should I consider imaging to evaluate for metastatic disease?

If your urology practice utilizes bone scan or CT scan for evaluation of metastatic disease, MUSIC has developed appropriateness criteria for when to consider pursuing one of these tests to evaluate for metastatic disease. MUSIC has also developed models for finding an abnormal bone scan or CT scan based on patient characteristics. While the results of these models does not directly factor into the MUSIC appropriateness criteria, they may be useful in communicating the risk of finding metastatic disease to patients.
