Musculoskeletal complaints are among the most common problems seen in family medicine clinics. Patients may expect that every musculoskeletal complaint requires imaging, however, they may leave the clinic without a referral to radiology. This discrepancy between reality and expectation may strain the patient-provider relationship. The goal of this project is to educate patients regarding imaging modalities and when it is appropriate for imaging to be ordered in the workup of a musculoskeletal complaint.
