In order to creatively build a radiology of the future, we have to look critically at everything we do now and be willing to tear some of it down.
Is producing radiology reports more quickly a means to an end or an end itself?
"Turn-Around Time" by Julianna Czum (adapted from "Alice in Wonderland," with apologies to Lewis Carroll):
"What is the value of ever-faster turn-around time?" said a radiologist; not that she much wanted to know, but the accountant had paused as if he thought that somebody ought to speak, and no one else seemed inclined to say anything.
Forget turf battles with non-radiologist providers. The new bogeyman looking to replace radiologists isn't even human. Should we worry?
