Does the HIRO charge for study initiation and scanning?

As of September 1, 2011, the HIRO will start charging for its image initiation and acquisition services. The HIRO charges modest per-study fees that vary depending on the complexity of the required imaging initiation and acquisition activities. The fees are intended to help us recover our operational costs, and they are separate from the clinical cost of performing imaging exams. To view our fee schedule, please see the Services section of our website. We are not yet charging for our image measurement and analysis services. This fee schedule was first publicized in the August 2011 OCR Newsletter.
