Unconscious Bias: Handling What You Don’t Know You Have


Jorge Soto, M.D., and Maureen Kohi, M.D., discuss how unconscious bias presents in radiology and the tools that providers can use to recognize and minimize the biases when they appear.

Radiology is not unlike any other medical specialty – biases exist even in the face of the strongest efforts to eliminate them. And, some of the most difficult to handle are the ones providers do not even know they have – the unconscious biases that largely go unrecognized.

But, the industry is beginning to talk about this issue more and more, educating radiology professionals about how unconscious biases appear and how they can best combat it. During this year’s Radiological Society of North America (RSNA) annual meeting, Jorge Soto, M.D., chief of radiology for Boston Medical Center, and Maureen Kohi, M.D., associate professor of clinical radiology at the University of California at San Francisco, led a session focusing on these biases that fly under the radar.

Diagnostic Imaging spoke with them about the importance of shining a light on this problem and what radiology can do.
