Radiologists Utilize Image-Based Global Networking Tool

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

Image Wisely Initiates New Annual Pledge Process

Commitment to Promote Safety in Medical Imaging Required Yearly

 

Reston, VA (Jan. 27, 2016) — Image Wisely participants must now make yearly commitments, as opposed to a one-time pledge, confirming their ongoing dedication to safety in medical imaging.

 

“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.

Radiology Managers Fight Private Payor Adoption of MPPR



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.

Surveying Our Domain

A theatrically-cantankerous science teacher of mine during middle school, sometimes given to the Socratic method, had a favorite quip for students answering his queries with wild guesses: “Where do you get your information?” (Often followed by an imitation of the usual lame/vague response, mocking their lack of enunciation: “Oh? You got it ouffa [out of a] book?”)

I’m often put in mind of him when I’m asked to participate in a survey, because my first thought in response is “What are you going to do with my information?"

Conference Insider 2015: 8 Reasons Why Radiology’s Future Is Bright

Recent years have seen many discussions about the challenges facing radiology and its up-and-coming practitioners.

Radiology’s Role in Patient Care

For the last several years, radiology departments have moved further away from a patient-focused model to concentrate on volume of studies. 

“The personal focus isn’t so much the normal way we practice radiology,” but that the culture of radiology departments has moved from the patient to the images, and the focus needs to return to the patient, Mary C. Mahoney, MD, said at RSNA 2015. “There is an art to being both humanistic and scientific when we treat our patients.”
