Figure 1 is an online global network in which healthcare practitioners, including radiologists, can share medical cases and receive feedback in real time. Using the smartphone app or web browser version, practitioners upload an image, write a caption and tag it with a category. Healthcare providers often post images of unusual cases they need help identifying or classic presentations of a disease. After the image is reviewed by Figure 1’s moderator team, the image and caption are available for questions, comments and feedback from the medical community around the world.

Image Wisely Initiates New Annual Pledge Process
Commitment to Promote Safety in Medical Imaging Required Yearly

“Requiring an annual Image Wisely pledge reinforces the solid commitment to eliminate unnecessary imaging exams and to only use the amount of radiation necessary to produce the image quality needed for the diagnostic imaging task,” said Richard L. Morin, PhD, FACR, FAAPM, co-chair of the Image Wisely Executive Committee and American College of Radiology (ACR) representative.

A concerning trend of private payors adopting the Medicare multiple procedure payment reduction (MPPR) on the professional component of imaging was clear at this year’s Radiology Business Management Association (RBMA) Fall Educational Conference.
This cut, which Medicare has applied since 2012, has now also become the policy of many of the nation’s largest insurance companies, despite the vigorous assertions of radiologists, radiology practice owners, and practice managers that the MPPR cut on the professional component of imaging is inappropriate.
