    re your b):  As far as I know the testing is done to "prove" the diagnosis to the insurance provider.  The only reason I know this is I was getting sinus xrays ad nauseum and told the doctor ENOUGH ALREADY!!  That's when he explained it to me.  Now this was approx. 20 yrs ago so it might have changed, but I doubt it.  I would venture to guess (I not sure how right I would be though), that the insurance companies themselves get a kick back on these tests etc.  Just like the whole drug/doctor thing.
