For as long as I can remember, both the American College of Radiology and the RSNA have emphasized communicating with patients. Personal contact and face time are the best ways. Clearly written instruction sheets, detailed descriptions of procedures, videotapes of complex interventions, and websites offering even more information are also available. In the case of mammography, the government has even mandated that a result letter be given to every patient.
