Radiologist takes to TV | Shoulder US changes management | 3D-printed kidneys

Dear AuntMinnie Member,

Radiologists are being urged to raise their public profile to avoid being marginalized in a changing healthcare environment. A radiologist from New Jersey has taken that advice to heart and is now appearing weekly on national TV.

Dr. Nicole Saphier began appearing on the morning news show "Fox & Friends" in December, discussing healthcare public policy and, in particular, changes coming from the election of Donald Trump. She's parlayed that into a regular weekly gig and will be appearing twice this week from Washington, DC, in conjunction with Fox's coverage of the Trump inauguration.

The appearances are a challenge for Dr. Saphier as she balances them with both her clinical work and family life, but she believes they show how radiologists can emerge from the darkroom and become more visible to the public.

Shoulder US changes management

Musculoskeletal ultrasound scans of the shoulder can have a big effect on patient management, according to a new study we're highlighting in our Ultrasound Community.

Researchers from the Mallinckrodt Institute of Radiology in St. Louis found that nearly two-thirds of patients with shoulder pain saw a change in their treatment plan after ultrasound scans were performed. Many were shifted from more conservative therapy into more invasive treatment.

3D-printed kidneys

Finally, be sure to visit our Advanced Visualization Community for a fascinating new article on how a group from New York used 3D printing to create kidney models for preoperative planning of surgeries in patients with renal masses.
