  annote = {graphics;We've found that well-executed graphics sometimes can help to avoid the time and expense of a trial. By summarizing the data into a clear picture, a number of graphics have convinced doctors and their attorneys to settle their cases out of court. The power of statistical graphics was emphasized for us in one situation when our investigators confronted a physician with his fraudulent billing pattern displayed in an easy-to-understand visual. The doctor became so upset that he started to hyperventilate and fainted. Our investigators found themselves in the peculiar position of having to revive the doctor in his own office before he could discuss his upcoded billings.}
