A & B- meaning error - out
C - much is wrong (countable noun - should be many)
D- wrong comparision (Radiologists,..., are now able to perform three times as many procedures
as there were )
You have your answer E.

Understanding the meaning would be helpful:
Radiologists are now using PACS which is helping them to perform more procedures per hour. More procedures per hour than they were performing in 1990s.
A is wrong as could indicates possibility. Instead the sentence should indicate certainty.
B would mean that tripling would happen of the procedures that they did in 1990s. Illogical.
C wrong since much is uncountable.
D wrong verb-tense. Were would mean that these procedures don't exist now.
E Correct use of "as many as" & correct verb-tense in "did". With "did" sentence clearly indicates that the number of procedures has increased over the number that was achieved in 1990s.
