RSNA is a chance for those in the radiology community to meet, swap stories and share information about the latest developments in imaging. In that spirit, Health Imaging will be talking to people at the meeting each day and asking them each one question. We’ll share a few responses every day, so be sure to keep an eye out for our newsletter or check the RSNA section of our website.
Today’s question: The conference’s theme this year is “Patients First.” Why is this an important theme for RSNA?
Quentin Moore, MPH – radiologic technology instructor, Mercy College of Ohio, Toledo
“It’s important to—as all of this technology comes together—to just remember that the patients are what the event’s all about.”
Isabel Oliva, MD – assistant professor of diagnostic radiology, Yale University, New Haven, Conn.
“Patient safety should be important to every doctor, not just the clinicians. As radiologists, we should be the ones more involved in educating the clinicians and make sure the patient gets the lowest possible dose, and working on techniques that have no dose, such as MRI.”
Derek Roebuck, MD – interventional radiologist, Great Ormond Street Hospital, London
“It’s the only thing that matters.”
