When healthcare providers act in an unprofessional manner, it can have a negative impact on patient care. So what are leaders to do when they notice unprofessional behavior spreading throughout entire departments? The authors of a recent analysis in the Journal of the American College of Radiology noticed a brewing feud between their institution’s radiology and emergency medicine (EM) departments—and decided to do something about it.

A reality for today’s imaging leaders is that many radiologists experience burnout on the job and need help coping with such feelings in order to provide patients with the very best care possible. According to a new opinion piece published in the Journal of the American College of Radiology, radiologists should look to the U.S. Marine Corps to better understand burnout and learn how to successfully manage it.

Compared to some other medical specialties, radiology continues to struggle with diversity. However, specialists, leaders, teachers and imaging societies throughout the United States are working hard to reverse that trend.

Hackathons are gaining popularity throughout the United States and can provide participants with a fun, competitive experience. Researchers from Yale University and the Yale School of Medicine in New Haven, Connecticut, recently hosted a three-day radiology-specific hackathon, sharing their experience in a case study published by the Journal of the American College of Radiology.

As the first female chief resident in an all-male program, Amy Patel, MD, breast radiologist at Boston's Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center and instructor of radiology at Harvard University Medical School, knows a lot about the importance of diversity and inclusivity of women and minorities in radiology.
