Cheryl Petersilge, MD, MBA, with the department of regional radiology at the Cleveland Clinic, examined enterprise imaging—and how radiologists must integrate and collaborate with other departments. Her clinical perspective clinical perspective was published online in the October issue of the American Journal of Roentgenology.

Boston Scientific received the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA)’s approval for MRI conditional labeling of its Resonate implantable cardioverter defibrillators (ICD) and cardiac resynchronization therapy defibrillator (CRT-D) systems with HeartLogic Heart Failure Diagnostic.

Multicenter research studies, published collaborations between at least three medical centers, are becoming increasingly common in some healthcare specialties—but not radiology. A team of researchers explored this trend, surveying published academics about such studies, and published their findings in Academic Radiology.

New research in the Journal of the American College of Radiology suggests the Northeastern United States has the highest per capita number of radiology residents, despite being the region most affected by job shortages.

Collaborating with various scientific disciplines has been essential for radiology’s growth over the years, according to a recent analysis published in Academic Radiology. Without the specialty reaching out and working with scientists in these other fields, it’s hard to imagine radiology as we know it today even existing.

When this process was simplified, the entire department benefited

Making significant workflow changes at large academic medical centers can be quite difficult, but a team of researchers at the Vanderbilt University Medical Center (VUMC) in Nashville, Tennessee, were able to do just that. Lead author Richard G. Abramson, MD, and colleagues shared their success in the Journal of the American College of Radiology, providing an in-depth look at what they changed and the impact it had on the entire radiology department.
