Looking for content to peruse with your coffee this weekend? Check out these ACR Weekend Reads on R-SCAN® --the ACR Radiology Support, Communications and Alignment Network -- and how it empowers radiolo­gists to take the first step in building a collaborative and consultative relationship with their referring clini­cians, provide better patient care at lower cost, reduce errors and unnecessary imaging, and improve quality and safety.

1. Achieving Success With R-SCAN: ACR’s collaborative action plan helps physicians meet MACRA requirements.

2. "My Aching Back!": Referring clinicians and radiologists come together to incorporate the low back pain guidelines into their patients' care.

3. R-SCAN: Why We Should Care!: In this JACR® study, authors discuss how R-SCAN can bring together radiologists and referring clinicians to collaboratively improve imaging utilization and take on an active role in the delivery of better patient care at lower cost.

4. R-SCAN: Successful Collaboration Made Easier: In this JACR monthly tweetchat, guest moderator Max Wintermark, MD, R-SCAN clinical advisor and a neuroradiologist at Stanford, discusses R-SCAN: what it is, how it will affect patients and physicians, why radiologists should participate, and what its current status is.

5. Partners in Quality: With R-SCAN, radiologists and ED physicians achieve a 45 percent improvement in appropriate CT ordering for PE.

6. Homing in on Quality: Radiologists in rural western North Carolina are strengthening their relationships with local physicians and reducing inappropriate imaging via R-SCAN™.

7. Quality's Wider Scope: A co-management agreement helps one North Carolina radiology practice achieve its quality goals.

8. Shaping Change from Within: Using R-SCAN™ as a transformation tool, a radiology group reduced inappropriate follow-up imaging by nearly 55 percent for patients with ovarian masses.
