Do medical students need more exposure to molecular imaging and nuclear medicine? Experts say yes!

Demand for molecular imaging is likely to grow in the coming years, but most trainees have little to no awareness of the burgeoning opportunity during medical school. Nuclear medicine experts say students need more exposure to the field to meet this growing need.

Radiologists must become 'data wranglers' for a front seat in healthcare's future

Although radiology reports and images contain large amounts of data that could contribute to improving patient outcomes, this information is often not easily accessed by electronic health records. According to presenters at the recent SIIM virtual meeting, this has resulted in a data gap that must be closed -- and a resource page we developed with RSNA can help. 👇

Radiology reports and images contain mounds of insightful data, and much of it could contribute significantly to improving patient outcomes if easily accessible through the electronic health record.

At my facility we are seeing a complication with our covid patients needing to start on dialysis. At the same time it doesn't seem to be helping them. My IR doc and I placed a Trialysis Cath on Monday and our pt passed yesterday. He's not the first one either. Are you experiencing anything similar?
I need your help!! Pediatric patient, 12 years old pain, swelling of the head on the right lower leg # 3 months, Pain increases greatly at night and when exercising There is no history of trauma or insect bites Thanks!!!
Hi all, I am doing research regarding the demand for radiologists in different countries around the globe and how to fill that gap. One of the reasons of that is the need I faced myself and other people I witnessed who waited too long for their radiology report and got their /sicknesses/impairments worst. Therefore, I want to overcome this issue by doing a market research so that I could analyze need, find the ways to fill the gap and help to save lives. I have links for 2 surveys: --The first for hospitals who are lacking radiologist and want to have more radiology services (https://surveyhero.com/c/146555c1) --The second for radiologist individuals and companies who are serving locally and worldwide (https://surveyhero.com/c/41762c3c) I would really appreciate if you could fill the survey accordingly whether you are a hospital or (and) radiologist. Let's save as many lives as we can !
