This Viewpoint discusses the importance of transitioning radiology from a volume-based to a value-based practice and specialty, starting from within with an effort by radiologists to help define and create that value for referring clinicians and the patients and health care systems they serve.

A new opinion piece from several prominent imaging institutions addresses the importance of demonstrating radiology's value, providing numerous strategies practices can follow to avoid being characterized as a volume-based system as we strive to be a value-based one.

This Viewpoint discusses the importance of transitioning radiology from a volume-based to a value-based practice and specialty, starting from within with an effort by radiologists to help define and create that value for referring clinicians and the patients and health care systems they serve.

Expanded Risk Model Identifies Women Who Need Additional Breast Cancer Screening

Researchers outline the details of a newly created risk model that can help providers identify which women at a high risk for breast cancer are most likely to develop the disease within two years of a negative screening. 👇

A model that includes mammographic features, lifestyle factors, and genetic-based risk prediction scores can effectively pinpoint which women will likely receive an interval cancer diagnosis.

With many imaging departments already using computed tomography to assess patients with COVID-19, a new study suggests providers can also add body assessments as opportunistic and low-cost means of triage.

Body composition gathered from low-dose CT imaging can serve as a “significant predictor” of poor outcomes for COVID-19 patients, including use of the intensive care unit.
