November 16, 2007 - At RSNA 2007, the RSNA Public Information Committee will sponsor a course on increased patient interaction in the radiology department.
The refresher course, RC116 – “Patient-centered Radiology: Use It or Lose It” takes place Nov. 25, 2007 at 2 p.m.
Current committee chair Philip O. Alderson, M.D., and immediate past-chair Michael N. Brant-Zawadzki, M.D., will join Marcy Brown, R.T., of the American Registry of Radiologic Technologists to discuss how—in an era of consumer driven healthcare, outsourcing of imaging services and growing competition—radiologists must connect with patients to prevent imaging from becoming a commodity.
The course will examine how personalizing and optimizing patient contact varies by practice setting and also offer specific examples and strategies.
