A recent report from the Academy of Medical Royal Colleges, after  consultation with medical colleges and faculties, identified a list of treatments or procedures that were considered to be of questionable benefit to patients. This was a response to a world-wide initiative to encourage improved communication between clinicians and patients to avoid unnecessary interventions.

There were no specific recommendations from the Royal College of Physicians. The Royal College of Radiologists recommended, for example:
After treatment for cancer, the use of routine scanning should only be used where this is beneficial to the patient.

Does anyone have any suggestions for any renal recommendations?
