Medical imaging professionals develop safety checklist to improve pediatric radiography
Date:10/1/2013

The October issue of the Journal of the American College of Radiology (JACR) focuses on a variety of issues relating to clinical practice, practice management, health services and policy, and radiology education and training. Topics to be covered include the evolving role of the radiologist; the increasing role of radiologists in thoracic diagnosis; the Image Gently Pediatric Digital Radiography Safety Checklist; managing incidental findings on abdominal and pelvic computed tomography (CT) and magnetic resonance imaging (MRI); and an analysis of radiologists' imaging workload trends by place of service.

Articles include:

The Evolving Role of the Radiologist: The Vancouver Workload Utilization Evaluation Study
Deljit Dhanoa, BSc, M.D., MBA; Tajinder S. Dhesi, BS; Kirsteen R. Burton, MSc, MBA, M.D.; Savvas Nicolaou, M.D.; Teresa Liang, BSc
Local radiologists provide added value beyond image interpretation, which suggests they are difficult to replace by non-radiologist physicians and off-site radiologists.

The Increasing Role of Radiologists in Thoracic Diagnosis: More Thoracic Biopsies Are Performed Percutaneously
Richard E. Sharpe Jr., M.D., MBA; David C. Levin, M.D.; Laurence Parker, PhD; Vijay M. Rao, M.D.
Fewer thoracic biopsies are being performed overall in the Medicare population, but the rate of radiologist-performed percutaneous thoracic biopsies continues to increase; consequently, radiologists are increasingly important in thoracic diagnosis.

The Image Gently Pediatric Digital Radiography Safety Checklist: Tools for Improving Pediatric Radiography
Susan D. John, M.D.; Quentin T. Moore, MPH, RT(R)(T)(QM); Tracy Herrmann, MEd, RT(R); Steven Don, M.D.; Kevin Powers, EdD, RT(R)(M); Susan N. Smith, RT(R); Greg Morrison, M.A., RT(R), CNMT, CAE; Ellen Charkot, MRT(R), QC, BHA; Thalia T. Mills, PhD; Lois Rutz, MS; Marilyn J. Goske, M.D.
