Abstract

One of the most common reasons that a patient seeks out a health care provider for a neuroscience-related issue is headache. Not all patients can, or probably should, be imaged with headache. We must use an approach that attends to scientific evidence, accepted guidelines, and available resources. This approach should focus on quality, safety, appropriateness, and utilization. This article reviews and discusses the consideration of imaging adult patients with headache.
