Practice Management

Radiologists, medical students and surgeons all agree that AI should be incorporated into diagnostic radiology, but for the most part their perceptions of the technology are drastically different.

No medical specialty outside of radiology and cardiology educate their trainees in image interpretation enough to justify nonradiologist physicians reading studies in the clinical setting, according to new research published in the American Journal of Roentgenology.

Radiologists should expect to see more dementia cases in the near future, but in order to properly care for these patients they must take steps to better understand the condition.

A group of five researchers looked at the relationship between studies read by radiology trainees during their residency and first-time performance on the ABR Core Examination, sharing their findings in Academic Radiology.

“Because BI-RADS 3 breast lesions have up to 2% likelihood of malignancy, it is imperative that optimal follow-up of BI-RADS 3 test results be addressed...," authors of the new study published in JACR wrote.

“Leaders in radiology, like leaders everywhere, must make clear that harassing behaviors will not be tolerated and that those who have committed harassment will be held accountable,” wrote authors of a new study published in JACR.

The number of vacant radiographer positions that are actively being recruited has risen, with many disciplines reaching their highest marks in more than a decade, according to new research from ASRT.

"We've been telling patients that even if these injections don't relieve your pain, they're not going to hurt you," said study author Ali Guermazi, MD, PhD. "But now we suspect that this is not necessarily the case."

“I am honored and excited to be named the editor of the RSNA Case Collection, a key initiative to create a comprehensive online resource of clinical cases for the practicing radiologists,” said its new editor, Mariam Moshiri, MD.

Shared-decision making is central to patient-centered care. And according to a recent literature review, radiologists can play a key role in the process.

Standardizing protocols for preclinical PET/CT imaging can help translate research findings to the clinical setting, according to a study published Sept. 27 in the Journal of Nuclear Medicine.

“I’m both honored and humbled to serve as editor of our specialty’s leading educational publication,” said Christine O. (Cooky) Menias, MD, the new editor of RadioGraphics.
