Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) is an essential component of medical care. Currently, however, the appropriateness of diagnostic imaging is increasingly debated. In a first report we identified -via database screening, literature review and interviews with stakeholders recommendations against the use of MRI and opportunities and strategies to drive appropriate imaging relevant to the Austrian context. In the second part we aim to provide additional information (on evidence base, guideline recommendations, diagnostic algorithms/decision support tools and products) on already identified recommendations regarding a set of indications selected by a working group of HVB and WKÖ.
