Emory University radiologists called the variation in fatigued-resident efficiency "new and interesting information" that may inform scheduling approaches during training.

St. Mary’s Hospital in London launched its pilot in 2019 and early success helped establish remote reading capabilities for nearly all of its rad consultants by the beginning of the lockdown.

The specialty needs to contribute more to the electronic health record to keep pace with data-driven care delivery, one informatics expert said during SIIM's virtual meeting.

After it’s tested and properly configured during the initial rollout phase, Mayo will gradually introduce the solution across all of its departments in Minnesota, Florida and Arizona.

Imaging informatics experts from the University of Pennsylvania and Cincinnati Children's Hospital Medical Center shared their successes—using varying levels of technology to connect and improve the patient experience—during SIIM's virtual meeting Thursday. 

“[Remote reading] could be a new normal in a specific paradigm shift for all of us and we’re going to have to adapt," Matthew Hayes, a PACS Manager at Radiology Partners, said during SIIM's 2020 virtual meeting.

ACR’s Center for Research and Innovation will gather and house all diagnostic scans for the Society of Critical Care Medicine's Viral Infection and Respiratory Illness Universal Study, or VIRUS, the groups announced Tuesday.

Participating institutions will contribute demographic information, signs and symptoms data, imaging exams, lab tests and patient outcomes.

About 80% of physicians requested an extra set of eyes from an outside facility either “always” or “most of the time,” and more than 90% said such consultations improved care.

If everyone would have logged in and downloaded their exams over the two-year study period, both users and the institutions could have saved a good chunk of change, according to new research.

Half of all imaging experts involved in the study reported symptoms such as irritated eyes, ocular fatigue, and headaches, among many other discomforts.

The drop in imaging volumes has disrupted these key educational experiences, but New York University School of Medicine docs have replicated traditional side-by-side collaborations with great success.
