Imaging Informatics

 

Now that patients want to play a more hands-on role in their own healthcare, the quality of radiology reports has never been more important. In a new analysis published in the American Journal of Roentgenology, the authors highlighted current reporting standards and emerging best practices with special emphasis placed on patient-centric concepts in radiology reporting.

In the last decade, radiation exposure and patient dose has decreased in cardiology, according to trends analyzed and evaluated in a recent article published by the Journal of the American College of Radiology.  

Radiologists may want to invest in cloud-based image sharing software for departmental workflow purposes. New research in the American College of Radiology showed high efficacy of cloud-based image sharing in a mammography department.

A recent study in the American College of Radiology aimed to assess spending patterns on high-cost imaging during the final three months of life.

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.
