Whitney J. Palmer

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:

Improvements in breast cancer detection have brought about significant changes in mortality rates among women of all ages over the past decades. And, investigators are continuing to see shifts in how the disease affects women. Later this week, look for coverage of what researchers are learning about the impact of this cancer that can strike women at any age.

More and more, the conversation in radiology is turning to globalization. Expanding radiology services and educational efforts worldwide is now a focus of the RSNA and many other institutions across the country. This week, Diagnostic Imaging Editorial Board member Mina Makary, M.D., interventional radiologist and assistant professor at The Ohio State University Wexner Medical Center, explores the opportunities that are available for IR in resource-limited settings. Look for his column later this week.

Sexual harassment and gender discrimination is still a lingering problem in medicine, as well as in radiology. Recently, a study in Academic Radiology addressed this topic, exploring how it impacts the way female radiologist perceive the industry and their future careers in it. This week, Diagnostic Imaging spoke with Prachi Agarwal, MBBS, clinical professor of radiology at Michigan Medicine, about what institutions can do to curb this culture in today’s environment. Look for our interview with her toward the end of the week.
