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 on Diagnostic Imaging:

This week is National Radiologic Technologist Week, and in celebration both of the profession and the 100th anniversary of the American Society of Radiologic Technologists (ASRT), Diagnostic Imaging spoke with ASRT President Michael Odgren about how the profession has evolved in recent years and about the main issues that are facing the radiologic technologist community. In addition, he provided insights into how the pandemic has changed the role these providers play in imaging centers and departments on a daily basis.

Throughout the pandemic, teleradiology has been a workflow and productivity model that has allowed radiologists to continue processing images while staying safe and reducing their exposure to COVID-19. But, remote reading does have its challenges – and continuing it as a long-term solution can be difficult. This week Diagnostic Imaging Editorial Board member Mina Makary, M.D., an interventional radiologist at The Ohio State University Wexner Medical Center, and his colleague Kelvin Wong, B.S., explored the obstacles presented by using teleradiology throughout the remainder of the pandemic and beyond. Look for his column later this week.

Much news has emerged recently about the use of synthetic mammography and the role it plays in growing the field of breast imaging. This week, we will share results of a study that examined the use of synthetic mammography in breast cancer detection. Look for this coverage later this week.
