- •Gender, age, race, and insurance type are associated with disparities in imaging in the emergency department.
- •Disparities are seen in different radiology-related time segments as well as length of stay in the emergency department.
- •Disparities are more pronounced in peak hours (compared to non-peak hours) particularly in image acquisition times.
