AI and teleradiology impact healthcare – Health Management
Teleradiology and artificial intelligence (AI) can work hand-in-hand and align their respective potential to greatly impact healthcare delivery. High-speed telecommunications networks—opening the way for vast amounts of data to be transferred across the globe instantly—provide the grounds for the emergence of teleradiology, a tool that allowed radiologists the access and freedom to diversify the way they practice. This article discusses a study published in Academic Radiology, referring to AI as a ‘gamechanger.’
10 things radiologists need to know about radiology extenders – Radiology Business
Medicare recently relaxed its rules on the supervision that non-physician radiology providers must have by radiologists for their respective practices to get reimbursed. In the wake of this change, these ‘midlevel providers’ are likely to grow in importance as well as in numbers. Radiology extenders (REs), sometimes called non-physician providers, are most widely known as radiology assistants (RAs). While there are many different job titles/acronyms in this particular area, what they all have in common is a green light to take on some of the duties and responsibilities traditionally performed only by radiologists themselves.
