Here's what to expect this week on Diagnostic Imaging.

In this week’s preview, here are some highlights of what you can expect to see coming soon:

The American Roentgen Ray Society (ARRS) is holding its 2021 Virtual Annual meeting this week. There will be a wide variety of sessions touching on all models, as well as award winners who will be recognized for their contributions to the field. Look for our ongoing coverage of the conference this week.

Interoperability and information-blocking guidelines set out by the Office of the National Coordinator went into effect earlier this month on April 5. Despite news coverage of these regulations, many in healthcare, including imaging facilities, were not prepared and are still not in compliance. Diagnostic Imaging spoke with Matthew Michela, chief executive officer of Life Image, about the reasons behind this lag in compliance, what it means for the industry, and what providers can do to fall in line with the regulations. Look for our podcast with him later this week.

Having HIV can also have cardiovascular implications for infected individuals. Later this week, look for coverage of a study that examines how the virus can impact a patient’s heart health.
