Clinical practice guidelines and clinical practice parameters are among the tools that clinicians and radiologists use to inform decision making in the diagnosis and treatment of patients. Radiologists have been urged to objectively establish their value and measurable contributions to patient care. Radiology's contribution to the health care value stream can be established in the development of sound clinical practice guidelines. Neuroradiologists have been quite active in developing clinical guidelines, particularly in collaboration with the American College of Radiology, but there is a need to increase the visibility and accessibility of such documents. Increasing access and visibility can contribute to improved patient outcomes and an improved overall quality of care.
