The goal of the ISCT blog is to serve as a valuable radiology resource to practicing physicians, trainees, residents, fellows, technologists, physician assistants, nurses and physicists. With such a wide target market, it can be a challenge to provide each niche with information that will be educational and valuable while still being so specialized. ISCT as an organization prides itself on the ability to provide highly specialized CT training materials, resources and workshops both online and in person.
We also want to provide this group of physicians with tools they can share with their patients. As an affiliate for Radiology Info, ISCT trusts www.radiologyinfo.org to provide explanations for over 200 radiology tests, treatments, procedures and safety subjects. With it’s mobile-friendly design; Radiology Info can be used by physicians as a quick reference tool to help patients better understand the procedure they need.
As radiology experts, you try to answer as many questions as possible from your patients but if they don’t think of all their questions ahead of time, they might have some concerns that have gone unaddressed. Arming your patients with a resource as opposed to letting them fend for themselves, will create a better physician-to-patient dialogue and result in better long-term quality of care.
Finding ways to improve your CT knowledge with Pre-Symposium Workshops and learning about the newest techniques and technologies regularly online is key to growing as a radiology provider. Don’t forget though, that the most important way you’re judged as a physician is by the way you make your patients feel.
