Molecular Imaging and Contrast Database (MICAD)
The MICAD staff has created the Molecular Imaging Probes and Contrast Agents List (MIP & CA List) by screening the PubMed/MedLine databases and other appropriate sources of such information. Only agents used in animal or human studies yielding in vivo data were selected for inclusion in the list.

A comprehensive synthesis of the latest scientific evidence and expert opinion that is organized to answer specific clinical questions.
Evidence-based Practice of Radiology
Lisa P. Lavelle, Ruth M. Dunne, Anne G. Carroll, and Dermot E. Malone. RadioGraphics 2015 35:6, 1802-1813.
Current health care reform in the United States is producing a shift in radiology practice from the traditional volume-based role of performing and interpreting a large number of examinations to providing a more affordable and higher-quality service centered on patient outcomes, which is described as a value-based approach to the provision of health care services. In the 1990s, evidence-based medicine was defined as the integration of current best evidence with clinical expertise and patient values. When these methods are applied outside internal medicine, the process is called evidence-based practice (EBP). EBP facilitates understanding, interpretation, and application of the best current evidence into radiology practice, which optimizes patient care.
