Ultrasound helps to guide percutaneous applications

The number of image-guided percutaneous interventions being performed, including tissue biopsies, fluid aspiration, and catheter insertions, has increased markedly. The rising popularity of these procedures is due to their less invasive nature and lower risk compared with surgery, their high diagnostic accuracy, and the substantial cost savings they provide.

Digital imaging makes inroads in orthopedics

The Oakland Athletics medical and training staff, preparing for spring training prior to the 2004 baseball season, considered the options for obtaining and reviewing radiographic studies. In past seasons, players went by van, five or so at a time, to local imaging facilities and offices in Phoenix and then returned to training. The process was repeated daily until examinations for the 80 or so players were completed. The films were interpreted, filed, or retained at the spring training site for later review by the orthopedists and medical staff and then traveled with the A's to California for the start of the season.

Analysis teases out true value of outsourcing anytime reads

The need for nighttime coverage relief was the initial driver of commercially viable teleradiology. For several years, however, the local in-house radiology group gained no economic value for outsourcing its nighttime work, because its members had to reread the cases the next day to formally convert the reports to primary reads. The group also had to pay a premium for nighttime services.

Cardiology PACS must produce moving images

Tensions between radiology and cardiology in the field of cardiac imaging have persisted for decades. The 1970s and 1980s were rife with turf battles over interventional angiography, echocardiography, and cardiac SPECT. More recently, cardiac MRI and CT have been the focus of intense debate about who is best qualified to perform and interpret these scans.
