IMPORTANCE Idiopathic olfactory loss is a common clinical scenario encountered by otolaryngologists. While trying to allocate limited health care resources appropriately, the decision to obtain a magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) scan to investigate for a rare intracranial abnormality can be difficult. OBJECTIVE To evaluate the cost-effectiveness of ordering routine MRI in patients with idiopathic olfactory loss. DESIGN, SETTING, AND PARTICIPANTS We performed a modeling-based economic… CONTINUE READING
