Our top story reviewed the recent regulatory changes that affect radiology practices and shared recommendations for navigating the legal landscape. Meanwhile, another presentation offered tips for managing crucial coding and compliance concerns.

In addition, attendees at AHRA 2021 heard about strategies that can help women overcome barriers and advance into leadership positions in radiology. And another talk shared how best practices and a proactive approach can minimize the risk of MRI accidents.

For these and other stories from the meeting, check out our RADCast @ AHRA special section.

LVO stroke assessment

In other highly viewed news this week, we reported on the merits of a new protocol for assessing patients with a suspected large vessel occlusion (LVO) stroke. Researchers in Spain found that better long-term outcomes could be achieved by bypassing traditional neuroimaging and transferring these patients directly to the angiography suite.
