According to a recent analysis published in Academic Radiology, burnout isn’t just about the workplace—it’s about a radiologist’s life outside of work as well.

Bibb Allen Jr., MD, department of radiology at Grandview Medical Center in Birmingham, Alabama, served as the 2016-2017 president of the American College of Radiology (ACR) and delivered the presidential address at the ACR 2017 Annual Meeting in Washington, D.C.

RADPAC, the American College of Radiology Association’s federal political action committee, is supporting two radiologists in their campaigns for Congress: Steve Sevigny, MD, a Democrat from Florida, and Steve Ferrara, MD, a Republican from Arizona.

Mentoring programs are common in most modern-day radiology residencies, spanning hundreds of teaching hospitals and all focuses of the field. In a column published in the Journal of the American College of Radiology, former radiology resident Charlotte S. Taylor, MD, and her mentor at the time, Vani Vijayakumar, MD, outlined a handful of points to help guide other institutions in their implementation of successful programs.

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.

Numerous past presidents of the Radiology Business Management Association will be on hand when RBMA members gather April 5 to 8 in San Diego. The event is the group’s 2018 PaRADigm conference. The current leadership is bringing in a presidential lineup spanning five decades to showcase how far the organization has come—and to underscore how vital its work remains—half a century after it was founded.

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.

The first female chief resident in an all-male program shares her thoughts on how far women have come in radiology and how far they still have to go.

If you aren’t enhancing a young rad’s raw talent right now—and figuring diversity into radiology’s future—you’re hurting your practice’s long-term outlook.

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.
