Practicing safe radiology

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter


It is no longer good enough to just know how to interpret imaging studies. All imaging modalities have bioeffects on tissue. Many imaging examinations ordered today are unnecessary or inappropriate, inflating healthcare costs. Imaging reports reflect the complexity of the image information and may be difficult to interpret by the ordering providers. Patients are now able to access their imaging information via electronic portals and are holding clinicians and radiologists accountable for the information in those reports.
