OBJECTIVES: Studies have shown that having a baseline mammogram, the first screening mammogram, available for comparison at the time of interpreting a subsequent mammogram significantly decreases the potential of a false-positive examination. Our aim was to evaluate knowledge of and perception about the significance of baseline mammograms in those women undergoing screening mammography. MATERIALS AND METHODS: A cross-sectional prospective survey study was conducted in women without a history of breast cancer presenting for their screening mammogram...

PURPOSE: The aim of this work was to prioritize in a quaternary academic environment necessary elements of a replacement PACS. METHODS: This quality improvement work was conducted at one academic medical center and was "not regulated" by the institutional review board. Three workgroups (10-15 members each) with unique resident, fellow, and attending radiologists; IT specialists; and departmental leaders convened in 2018 to prioritize elements for a PACS replacement project, including integrated IT tools...

PURPOSE: Industry payments to physicians are financial conflicts of interest and may influence research findings and medical decisions. We aim to (1) characterize industry payments within radiation oncology; and (2) explore the potential correlation between receiving disclosed industry payments and academic productivity. MATERIALS/METHODS: CMS database was used to extract 2015 industry payments. For academic radiation oncologists, research productivity was characterized by h- and m-indices, as well as receipt of National Institutes of Health (NIH) funding, which is not an industry payment...

PURPOSE: To investigate the national coverage landscape for prostate MRI services, assessing the presence of updated and accurate coverage requirements by private payers. METHODS: The database Policy Reporter was used to evaluate private payer coverage related to prostate MRI for 81 plans covering 149 million people in the United States. Both the indications and requirements for prostate MRI coverage were recorded in a variety of clinical scenarios, including initial diagnosis, staging, active surveillance, and suspected recurrence...

PURPOSE: Studies suggest that quality improvement (QI) projects in health care lack scientific rigor, but the actual frequency of use of proven scientific QI methodology is unknown. The purposes of this study are to (1) conduct a systematic review of QI projects in radiology journals on the frequency of use of iterative cycles, a marker of proven QI methodology, and (2) assess association of the use of iterative cycles with characteristics of these projects. MATERIALS AND METHODS: We searched English-language radiology journals on MEDLINE between 2008 and 2015 for published QI studies...

PURPOSE: Spatial access to health care resources is a requisite for utilization. Our purpose was to determine, at a census tract level, the geographic distribution of US smokers and their driving distance to an ACR-accredited CT facility. METHODS: The number of smokers per US census tract was determined from US Census Bureau data (American Community Survey, 2011-2015) and census tract smoking prevalence estimates. Driving distance, from the centroid of each census tract to the nearest CT facility, was determined using a geographic information system...

The ACR convened a cross-specialty, multidisciplinary technical expert panel to identify and define new measures for quality improvement. These measures can be included in the ACR's National Radiology Data Registry and potentially used in the CMS quality reporting programs. The technical expert panel was tasked with developing measures that reflect the most rigorous clinical evidence and address areas most in need of performance improvement. The measures described in these articles represent a new phase in the ACR's efforts to develop meaningful measures for radiologists that promote population health through diagnostic accuracy, clinical effectiveness, and care coordination...

PURPOSE: To assess recent trends in utilization of coronary CT angiography (CCTA), based upon place of service and provider specialty. MATERIALS AND METHODS: The nationwide Medicare Part B master files for 2006 through 2016 were the data source. Current Procedural Terminology, version 4 codes for CCTA were selected. The files provided procedure volume for each code. Utilization rates per 100,000 Medicare fee-for-service enrollees were then calculated. Medicare's place-of-service codes were used to identify CCTAs performed in private offices, hospital outpatient departments (HOPDs), emergency departments (EDs), and inpatient settings...

PURPOSE: Clinical decision making regarding the use of imaging is appropriately centered on diagnostic efficacy and individual patient factors. However, health policy and imaging guidelines may incorporate other inputs, such as cost-effectiveness and patient preference. In the context of climate change and resource scarcity, the environmental impacts of imaging modalities including ultrasound, CT, and MRI will also become relevant. The purpose of this study was to estimate the environmental impacts of various abdominal imaging examinations...

OBJECTIVE: We have previously described the central nature of simple cases for financial feasibility of proton beam therapy centers-especially four- to five-room centers. In the 5 years since that publication, such construction has slowed drastically, and smaller, single-room projects are in vogue. We now seek to show under what circumstances a single-room system is optimally financially viable. MATERIALS AND METHODS: A "standard" construction cost and debt for a single gantry system of $40 million was presumed, with 75% of the construction funded through standard 20-year financing...
