The number of female radiologists publishing articles in academic journals jumped significantly from 1970 to 2000, but that trend has slowed down in recent years, according to a new study published in Academic Radiology.

In this modern era of quality over quantity, reducing the causes of burnout is one of the most effective ways imaging leaders can ensure patients receive the best care possible. For a new study published in Academic Radiology, researchers surveyed a group of radiology residents to better understand their sense of personal accomplishment (PA) and learn how it could be improved.

In recent years, significant progress has been made throughout the United States in the representation of women in healthcare. Radiology, however, remains one of the few medical specialties still dominated by men—a 2016 report from the Association of American Medical Colleges, for example, found that 24.7 percent of active radiologists in the country are female. To dive deeper into this gender gap, researchers studied the radiology workforce all over the world, publishing their findings in Academic Radiology.

Unconscious bias exists in all of us, developing over time. But that doesn’t mean it should go unchecked. A new analysis published in the Journal of the American College of Radiology examined both conscious and unconscious bias, noting the differences between the two and how they can impact the recruitment process.

Julianna Czum, MD, a member of the Journal of the American College of Radiology (JACR) editorial board, has played a central role in helping the American College of Radiology embrace blog posts. She launched the journal’s blog, JACR Blog, and serves as both its editor and its primary author. Czum spoke with Radiology Business about the impact of social media and how to differentiate a good blog post from a bad one.
