Emergency radiology for medical students; CTRM; last week for Minnies nominations

Dear AuntMinnie Member,

There's never been a more important time for medical students to learn about appropriate imaging utilization, and researchers from the University of Michigan Hospital System believe they have found a great way to accomplish that goal.

The team found that second-year medical students significantly improved their understanding of appropriate imaging use and their confidence in ordering imaging appropriately after taking a short emergency radiology elective.

Associate editor Kate Madden Yee has our coverage of their experience: Click here to learn more, or visit our Imaging Leaders Digital Community at leaders.auntminnie.com.


Speedy and accurate communication of radiology results to clinicians is critical in today's time-sensitive healthcare world. Adopting critical test results management (CTRM) software can be an invaluable tool, according to Dr. Mark Flyer, vice chair of radiology at Maimonides Medical Center in New York City.

In an article for AuntMinnie.com, Dr. Flyer shares how adopting CTRM software four years ago led to dramatic improvements in the workflow of radiologists and clinicians at their institution. Success didn't come overnight, however; it required a culture change in how radiologists and clinicians communicated.
