Upcoming Webinars From RadSite to Focus on PACS, Medicolegal Concerns in Medical Imaging
Date:11/20/2015

RadSite™, a leading accreditation agency for diagnostic imaging quality as designated by the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS), is pleased to announce the third presentation in an educational webinar series. The session, “Tackling Medicolegal Concerns in Picture Archiving and Communication Systems (PACS): Part 1”, will explore who really owns medical images, how to deal with bankruptcy in an imaging facility and why physicians don’t use image compression more often.

The webinar, scheduled for December 9, 2015, at 12 p.m., EST, will be led by Eliot Siegel, MD, an internationally recognized radiologist who serves as Professor and Associate Vice Chair of Research Information Systems at the University of Maryland School of Medicine, Department of Diagnostic Radiology, as well as Chief of Radiology and Nuclear Medicine for the Veterans Affairs Maryland Healthcare System, both in Baltimore, MD. Dr. Siegel also serves as RadSite’s Chief Technology Officer and Chair of the Accreditation Committee. To register, click here.

“Legal issues in the era of digital health care are often not well understood or intuitive, especially in the field of diagnostic imaging,” says Siegel. “Having a good understanding of medicolegal issues such as image retention and ownership responsibility in your facility is important from not only a legal and regulatory but also a quality perspective.”

RadSite will host the final webinar in the series on February 3, 2016, at 12 p.m., EST. The session, “Tackling Medicolegal Concerns in PACS: Part 2” will discuss additional issues such as whether or not to retain the markings produced by mammography computer-aided detection (CAD) software to highlight suspicious findings, which could have important medicolegal implications.

The first webinar in the series took place on October 27, 2015 and focused on patient safety in medical imaging. To access the webinar recording, click here.

The second webinar discussed physics for advanced imaging diagnostic systems and took place on November 17, 2015. To hear the recording, click here.

“We are very excited to offer this series of webinars,” says RadSite Advisory Board Chair Garry Carneal, JD, MA. “RadSite is proud to be a thought leader in the diagnostic imaging arena; these presentations are an extension of our educational mission and solidify our commitment to quality and patient safety.”
