BACKGROUND: One of the major challenges facing global radiology services comes from delays connected to long waiting lists for magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) procedures. Such delays in diagnostic procedures could lead to poorer patient care outcomes. This study intended to estimate the rate of "No-Shows" or "Reschedule" MRI appointments. We also investigated the factors correlating No-Shows and Reschedule MRI appointments. METHODS: A cross-sectional study was conducted in Saudi Arabia using data obtained via MRI schedule reviews and self-administrated questionnaires...

Due to its location, intra-masseteric venous malformation often mistaken for a parotid swelling and clinical examination alone frequently underestimates the deep extension of the lesion and rarely gives accurate pre-operative diagnosis. But once it is diagnosed, the feasibility of the treatment and the plan of approach depend on accurate delineation of the extent, size and location of the lesion. Therefore, complimentary radiographic studies are essential for its management. In this case report, typical features of venous malformation within the masseter muscle, including clinical findings (turkey wattle sign) and imaging are presented...

BACKGROUND: Ultrasound-guided biopsy procedures are the most prominent methods that increase the trauma, stress and anxiety experienced by the patients. OBJECTIVES: Our goal was to examine the level of stress in patients waiting for radiologic biopsy procedures and determine the stress and anxiety level arising from waiting for a biopsy procedure. PATIENTS AND METHODS: This prospective study included 35 female and 65 male patients who were admitted to the interventional radiology department of Kartal Dr...

PURPOSE: During general surgery (GS) training, residents are expected to accurately interpret radiologic images. Objective evidence evaluating residents' ability to provide accurate interpretation of imaging studies is currently lacking. METHODS: A 30-item web-based test was developed using images from different radiologic modalities. Residents from 6 ACGME accredited GS programs participated. Residents from 1 radiology program served as a control group. RESULTS: 74 GS residents (GSR) enrolled in the online test...

OBJECTIVE: The current study aims to assess the preventability of the contrast media adverse drug reactions reported through the Campania spontaneous reporting system, identifying the possible limitations emerged in this type of evaluation. METHOD: All the individual case safety reports validated by the Campania Pharmacovigilance Regional Centre from July 2012 to September 2015 were screened to select those that reported contrast media as suspected drug. Campania Preventability Assessment Committee, in collaboration with clinicians specialized in Radiology, assessed the preventability according to the P-Method, through a case-by-case approach...

BACKGROUND: Ultrasonography (US) is a useful tool for breast imaging, yet is highly operator-dependent. OBJECTIVES: We evaluated inter-observer variability and performance discrepancies between faculty members and radiology residents when describing breast lesions, by the fifth edition of breast imaging reporting and data system (BI-RADS)-US lexicon, and then attempted to identify whether inter-observer variability could be improved after one education session. PATIENTS AND METHODS: In total, 50 malignant lesions and 70 benign lesions were considered in our retrospective study...

INTRODUCTION: Patients, providers, and payers are striving to identify where value in cancer care can be increased. As part of the Choosing Wisely (CW) campaign, ASCO and the American Society for Therapeutic Radiology and Oncology have recommended against specific, yet commonly performed, treatments and procedures.

PURPOSE: To examine the relationship between radiologic technologists' performance on 3 medical certification exams and the type of accredited education program they attended. METHODS: Data came from 3 certification exam programs administered by the American Registry of Radiologic Technologists (ARRT). The author used simple means and mixed-effect models to analyze 13 years of data. RESULTS: The difference in performance between programs with and without programmatic accreditation, as modeled with linear mixed-effect models, amounted to approximately 2 exam questions out of 200 for radiography, no difference for nuclear medicine technology, and approximately 4 questions out of 200 for radiation therapy...

Performance improvement in a complex health care environment depends on the cooperation of diverse individuals and groups, allocation of time and resources, and use of effective improvement methods. To address this challenge, we developed an 18-week multidisciplinary training program that would also provide a vehicle for effecting needed improvements, by using a team- and project-based model. The program began in the radiology department and subsequently expanded to include projects from throughout the medical center...

INTRODUCTION: To evaluate if advanced neuroimaging research is mainly conducted by imaging specialists, we investigated the number of first authorships by radiologists and non-radiologist scientists in articles published in the field of advanced neuroimaging in the past 10 years. METHODS: Articles in the field of advanced neuroimaging identified in this retrospective bibliometric analysis were divided in four groups, depending on the imaging technique used. For all included studies, educational background of the first authors was recorded (based on available online curriculum vitae) and classified in subgroups, depending on their specialty...

The Glasgow Coma Scale (GCS) was developed to standardize the assessment of neurologically compromised patients, to assist in triaging severity of injury, and to direct management decisions for an individualized plan of care. This examination allows for frequent assessments to ascertain worsening of neurological symptoms that would warrant additional radiological scans or interventions. The GCS score is composed of three components: eye, verbal, and motor, with motor being the most difficult to assess. A need for clarification of the motor component of the GCS was identified in a neurotrauma intensive care unit (ICU) at a level 1 hospital in the United States...

Langerhans cell histiocytosis (LCH) is a rare multisystemic disease. LCH is characterized by proliferation of myeloid progenitors with altered differentiation program and similar phenotypic features to epidermal dendritic cells termed Langerhans cell. LCH cells express CD1a+ and langerin and exhibit BRAF V600E mutation in ∼50% of cases. Neurological involvement or neuro-LCH is observed in 5 to 10% of cases. Three subtypes of neuro-LCH are individualized. The tumor type, accounting for 45% of neuro-LCH, affect mainly young adults...

BACKGROUND: Digital templating systems have been promoted due to their ability to reduce costs, facilitate preoperative planning, and maintain surgical accuracy. The implementation of a templating system at a large institution is complicated and has not been fully described. PURPOSE: We aim to explain the requisite collaboration between orthopaedic surgery, radiology, and information technology needed to implement a successful orthopaedic templating system at a large institution...

PURPOSE: To assess the performance of interprofessional teams of radiologists, technologists, and nurses trained with high-fidelity hands-on (HO) simulation and computer-based (CB) simulation training for contrast reaction management (CR) and teamwork skills (TS). METHODS: Nurses, technologists, and radiology residents were randomized into 11 teams of three (one of each). Six teams underwent HO training and five underwent CB training for CR and TS. Participants took written tests before and after training and were further tested using a high-fidelity simulation scenario...

Academic medical centers are widely recognized as vital components of the American health care system, generally differentiated from their community hospital peers by their tripartite mission of clinical care, education, and research. Community hospitals fill a critical and complementary role, serving as the primary sites for health care in most communities. Health care reform initiatives and economic pressures have created incentives for hospitals and health systems to integrate, resulting in a nationwide trend toward consolidation with academic medical centers leveraging their substantial assets to merge, acquire, or establish partnerships with their community peers...
