Abstract:   (1909 Views)
Background: As medical science and health policies have advanced, the proportion of people over 60 years old has risen as well. This study looked into the number of older people admitted to Loghman Hakim Hospital's imaging ward as a representative sample of public hospitals (mostly referred to by the middle class).
Methods: Data related to all inpatients and outpatients referred to Loghman Hospital for diagnostic imaging in 2015 were collected and then analyzed using SPSS software.
Results: A comparison of the number of admissions, gender, and services performed, as well as the type of admission and imaging cost, revealed that there is a significant correlation between these parameters.
Conclusion: Adjustment and adaptation of the imaging department in order to adjust the costs of aging health should be on the agenda of decision-makers.
