FDG-PET takes lead role in suspected or proven infection

In recent years, several groups have demonstrated the promise of FDG-PET imaging in the management of patients with suspected and/or documented infection. This technique appears to be particularly useful in the evaluation of osteomyelitis, infected prostheses, fever of unknown origin, and acquired immunodeficiency syndrome. Considering the extraordinary sensitivity of FDG-PET in detecting disease activity and nonactivity in malignant and benign disorders, this powerful method may prove valuable also in a variety of infectious processes. We speculate that it will be widely employed in the near future for detecting, characterizing, and monitoring patients with suspected or proven infection.

Comment: Hurdles to remote credentialing protect radiologists and quality of care

There is another perspective on the analysis of proposed CMS regulations as described in your article "CMS plan could take a bite out of teleradiology night reads," published July 29. There is a problem with hospitals accepting the credentials of others. That approach bypasses normal medical staff oversight. This is inimical to patient care and undermines the security of all medical staff: now radiologists-next, someone else.
