Many transgender and gender-diverse (TGD) patients report experiencing discrimination when receiving healthcare services, according to a new analysis published in the Journal of the American College of Radiology.

More than half of radiologists who experience burnout cope with those feelings through exercise, according to a new report from Medscape. Radiologists also handle such feelings by speaking with friends and family, sleeping, playing/listening to music and isolating themselves from others.

The American Society of Radiologic Technologists (ASRT) has announced the winners of the ASRT Foundation’s annual International Speakers Exchange Award.

CT technologists, just like radiologists and other imaging professionals, can experience high rates of burnout. What can be done to combat burnout and keep patient care running smoothly?

When Issack Boru was growing up in Ethiopia, his father suffered a head injury, but was unable to receive the care he needed due to a lack of medical imaging resources. This made an impact on Boru, who now works as a radiology imaging supervisor and volunteers to provide training all over the world.

A funny thing happened on the way to PaRADigm 2019, the upcoming annual meeting of the Radiology Business Management Association. Where RBMA usually draws speaking proposals from 50 or 60 potential presenters, this time nearly 90 came in. That was far more than the 42 slots allotted for breakouts, so the association will have plenty of material to pick from as it organizes webinars and other educational events over the coming months.

In radiology, hiring can sometimes be a time-consuming process. According to new research published in Current Problems in Diagnostic Radiology, the specialty could learn a thing or two about effective hiring techniques from innovative companies such as Google.

Hospital executives at NHS Highland in Scotland have been accused of blacklisting experienced radiologists and refusing to hire them even though the hospital has been experiencing a staffing shortage.

Twenty-eight percent of U.S. diagnostic radiology residents say they experienced workplace bullying during their residency, according to research published in Clinical Imaging.
