Breast Imaging in Focus
The entire specialty of radiology can learn a great deal from breast imaging.
Breast imagers effectively communicate with their patients — allaying concerns, soothing nerves, and providing a roadmap for care. They educate referring physicians about procedures and even undertake education initiatives to help underrepresented minorities understand the benefits of early screening. Through their involvement with the Society for Breast Imaging and the ACR, breast imagers stand with other radiologists and stakeholders to advocate for fair reimbursement and the establishment of a model that emphasizes value over volume.
