Leadership

 

It’s the hottest topic in radiology right now: What kind of impact will artificial intelligence and machine learning have on the specialty’s future? According to a recent opinion piece published in the Journal of the American College of Radiology, imaging leaders should start worrying less about robots replacing radiologists and more about why radiologists are being treated as if they are already robots.

It has become increasingly important for today’s radiology residents to pursue fellowships, because it raises their marketability in the workplace and can lead to more personal satisfaction.

The peer review model traditionally found in radiology is slowly losing ground as many it not ideal for examining mistakes. At RSNA 2017 in Chicago, David Larson, MD, MBA, with the Stanford University School of Medicine, explained why peer learning is a better option for organizations and practices to use when analyzing interpretation errors.

Management skills within healthcare, specifically in radiology, are critical to success. More important than management, however, is leadership, as it means always doing the right thing rather than just doing things correctly.

Compared to other specialties, radiology is struggling to attract diversity in its workforce in the United States.
