Andrew George Alexander, Deborah Deas, Paul Eric Lyons
BACKGROUND: Imaging and its optimal use are imperative to the practice of medicine, yet many students don't receive a formal education in radiology. Concurrently, students look for ways to take time away from medical school for residency interviewing. Web-based instruction provides an opportunity to combine these imperatives using online modalities. OBJECTIVE: A largely Web-based course in radiology during the 4th year of medical school was evaluated both for its acceptance to students who needed to be away from campus for interviews, and its effectiveness on a nationally administered standardized test...

OBJECTIVE: To analyze the production of doctoral theses in diagnostic imaging in Spain in the period comprising 1976 through 2011 with the aim of a) determining the number of theses and their distribution over time, b) describing the production in terms of universities and directors, and c) analyzing the content of the theses according to the imaging technique, anatomic site, and type of research used. MATERIAL AND METHODS: The TESEO database was searched for "radiología" and/or "diagnóstico por imagen" and for terms related to diagnostic imaging in the title of the thesis...

Purpose To investigate barriers to reporting safety concerns in an academic radiology department and to evaluate the role of human factors, including authority gradients, as potential barriers to safety concern reporting. Materials and Methods In this institutional review board-approved, HIPAA-compliant retrospective study, an online questionnaire link was emailed four times to all radiology department staff members (n = 648) at a tertiary care institution. Survey questions included frequency of speaking up about safety concerns, perceived barriers to speaking up, and the annual number of safety concerns that respondents were unsuccessful in reporting...

Introduction: Emergency departments (ED) and hospitals face increasing challenges related to capacity, throughput, and stewardship of limited resources while maintaining high quality. Appropriate utilization of extremity magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) examinations within the emergency setting is not well known. Therefore, this study aimed to determine indications for and appropriateness of MRI of the extremities for musculoskeletal conditions in the ED observation unit (EDOU). Methods: We conducted this institutional review board-approved, retrospective study in a large, quaternary care academic center and Level I trauma center...

PURPOSE: To understand why patients "no-show" for imaging appointments, and to provide new insights for improving resource utilization. MATERIALS AND METHODS: We conducted a retrospective analysis of nearly 2.9 million outpatient examinations in our radiology information system from 2000 to 2015 at our multihospital academic institution. No-show visits were identified by the "reason code" entry "NOSHOW" in our radiology information system...

RATIONALE AND OBJECTIVES: The role of a radiologist has expanded beyond the tripartite mission of patient care, education, and research to include cross-specialty consultation for patient management, innovative solutions to improve health-care quality and safety, device design, and policy advocacy. As such, radiology residency programs should incorporate formalized training to prepare residents for these various professional roles. MATERIALS AND METHODS: Since the 2015-2016 academic year, five training tracks focused on noninterpretative skills have been integrated into our residency training program: Clinician Educator, Quality Improvement, Entrepreneurship/Innovation, Health Policy Advocacy, and High-Value Care...

RATIONALE AND OBJECTIVES: With the restructuring of radiology board certification, many residencies created PGY-5 "mini-fellowships," during which residents spend focused time pursuing advanced subspecialty training or developing nonclinical skills in leadership, health policy and health-care economics, education, quality improvement, informatics, research, or global health. We surveyed graduates of an academic diagnostic radiology residency to assess the relative value and impact of PGY-5 mini-fellowships on career satisfaction and success...

RATIONALE AND OBJECTIVES: This study aimed to characterize articles in popular general radiology journals that go uncited for a decade after publication. METHODS: Using the Web of Science database, we identified annual citation counts for 13,459 articles published in Radiology, American Journal of Roentgenology, and Academic Radiology between 1997 and 2006. From this article cohort, we then identified all original research articles that accrued zero citations within a decade of publication...

Effective and dedicated educators are critical to the preservation and advancement of the practice of radiology. The need for innovative and adaptable educators is increasingly being recognized, with several institutions granting academic promotions through clinician-educator tracks. The implementation of resident "clinician-educator tracks" or "teaching tracks" should better prepare residents aspiring to become academic radiologists focused on teaching. In this work, we describe our experience in the development and implementation of a clinician-educator track for diagnostic radiology residents at our institution...

PURPOSE: ACR workforce surveys have suggested progressive recovery in the number of available jobs for radiologists over the past several years. The purpose of this study was to ascertain the status of jobs available in diagnostic radiology as well as to analyze the content of the job boards of general radiology and subspecialty societies with the intent of uncovering differences in posting preferences to better steer job seekers. METHODS: The content of the online job boards hosted by the SPR, ASNR, ACR, and RSNA was evaluated on 365 consecutive days between July 1, 2016 and June 30, 2016...

The purpose of this study was to investigate the effect of nursing information system (NIS) on clinical performance from the perspective of nurses in an academic hospital affiliated to Mashhad University of Medical Sciences in Iran. This descriptive cross-sectional study was conducted in 2016. We collected data targeting nurses with over three years' experience in using the NIS (120 nurses). NIS had caused improvement in "accuracy the consistency of drug, lab tests and radiology requests", "increasing the speed of the automated extracting of minimum data set for decision making and care trends" with the means of 4...

PURPOSE: To determine the need for a standardized renal mass reporting template by analyzing reports of indeterminate renal masses and comparing their contents to stated preferences of radiologists and urologists. METHODS: The host IRB waived regulatory oversight for this multi-institutional HIPAA-compliant quality improvement effort. CT and MRI reports created to characterize an indeterminate renal mass were analyzed from 6 community (median: 17 reports/site) and 6 academic (median: 23 reports/site) United States practices...

OBJECTIVE: The ability of emergency physicians (EP) to identify hydronephrosis using point-of-care ultrasound (POCUS) has been assessed in the past using CT scans as the reference standard. We aimed to determine the ability of EP for identifying and grading of hydronephrosis on POCUS using the consensus interpretation of POCUS by emergency radiologists as the reference standard. METHODS: The study was conducted at an urban academic emergency department (ED) as a secondary analysis of previously collected ultrasound data from the EP performed POCUS-databank...

BACKGROUND AND PURPOSE: Delayed cerebral ischemia is a severe complication of aneurysmal SAH and is associated with a high case morbidity and fatality. The total blood volume and the presence of intraventricular blood on CT after aneurysmal SAH are associated with delayed cerebral ischemia. Whether quantified location-specific (cisternal, intraventricular, parenchymal, and subdural) blood volumes are associated with delayed cerebral ischemia has been infrequently researched. This study aimed to associate quantified location-specific blood volumes with delayed cerebral ischemia...
