Codes and Frequencies
For male sample adults aged 40 years and older who ever had an abnormal PSA test result (PSABNORM), PSAMRI indicates whether the respondent had a MRI following the abnormal results.
Interviewers asked an open ended question about follow-up to the abnormal results (see Survey Text tab). The survey form then directed interviewers to, "Mark all that apply. Enter the number at each item mentioned. Enter (n) for no more."
Interviewers were further directed to, "Probe: 'Anything else?'"
Other response categories for this question included:
The 2000 Field Representative's Manual defined MRI as, "... a non-invasive diagnostic technique that uses radio waves to produce computer images of internal body tissues."
