December 9, 2014 — vRad (Virtual Radiologic) announced that  Arlene Sussman, M.D. has been promoted to vRad’s medical leadership team as medical director. Along with providing interpretations, Sussman is responsible for ensuring that the clinical operations of vRad’s mammography services deliver the highest level of service to its clients and the patients they serve. She also will help to recruit and hire additional fellowship-trained breast imaging subspecialists into the practice with expertise in mammography and diagnostic breast services.

As the largest private practice in the country, vRad provides clients nationwide access to board-certified, fellowship-trained mammographers with extensive training and experience in a complete suite of breast imaging services, which include:

·    Full screening and diagnostic mammographic and breast sonographic interpretations.

·   Methods to remain ACR and MQSA-compliant that include lead interpreting physician services, where vRad is assigned responsibility to help ensure that a facility's quality assurance program remains compliant. It will include a quarterly review of the mammography practice, along with ongoing feedback and the necessary reviews to ensure compliance and continued accreditation. This will be a requirement for any situation where vRad is the sole mammography interpreter for a facility.

·  Providing Breast Imaging Reporting and Data System (BIRADS) score reports to clients on a regular basis for easier and more transparent patient tracking. Clients will be able to access BIRADS data at any time via vRad’s Client Access Portal, improving their ability to follow up on suspicious mammogram findings as well as to document the process.

· Flexible program implementation so that vRad’s wide range of expertise can help enhance the level of care by filling any of an imaging staff’s specialty gaps, including breast MRIs, or meeting overflow needs to free the existing radiology team to review other studies or procedures.
