No world-class radiology residency program ever attained its excellence without securing and sustaining department-wide buy-in on the criticality of teaching the next generation of radiologists. Clinical care and research don’t need to be de-emphasized in any way, but every faculty member in the department must be committed to teaching while sincerely appreciating the value of the residency program in ensuring the present and future health of the profession.

Once considered some of the most contractually stable and fiscally secure practitioners in all of U.S. medicine, radiologists are today concerned about their very future—and more than a few are right to be worried. From nosediving reimbursement to successive consolidation, from constantly expanding technologies to fitfully pinballing policymaking, the pressures have been varied and unrelenting for years now. What’s more, the pace of change is even now only accelerating. How best to rise to this moment with realistic hopes of emerging stronger than ever?

In the ongoing effort to improve its solutions with customer input, Konica Minolta Healthcare Americas will be showcasing new features in the Exa™ Platform that enhance patient engagement, referring provider satisfaction and imaging workflow productivity.

One of the latest offerings in vRad’s service portfolio would make for a good chapter in How to Do More with Less in Radiology, should such a book ever get written. The new program is the teleradiology giant’s Virtual Resident Workflow (VRW), and the title of the chapter on it would be something along the lines of: “While You’re Interpreting, You Could Be Teaching Too.”

 - vRad’s Live Video Diagnostics (LVD)

Breast-imaging patients and the radiologic technologists who serve them have long wished for a breast radiologist to be there for them—on call or already present—whenever questions or concerns arise in the exam room.
