Identification: ACR2017VM03

Credits: None available.

The purpose of this session is to discuss lung cancer screening programs and to highlight challenges that may arise as the programs mature.

The session will provide information on how to continue forward with lung cancer screening beyond just establishing a program. Topics include correctly using Lung-RADS, addressing 'gaps' in Lung-RADs, managing the screening process after the baseline screen, and implementing upcoming changes in the Fleischner Society recommendations for management of incidentally detected lung nodules. Developed in conjunction with The Fleischner Society and Society of Thoracic Radiology.


Learning Objectives:

  1. Identify solutions to common challenges encountered in establishing a lung cancer screening program.
  2. Discuss appropriate management recommendations and correctly use Lung-RADS to report lung cancer screening CT scans.
  3. Describe changes to lung nodule management based on the 2017 Fleischner Society guidelines.

Credits: None available.

The purpose of this session is to focus on the role leadership can play in designing and implementing programs in hospitals and radiology practices to improve and optimize the patient experience. The perspectives and needs of leaders and patients will be explored through a series of practical cases/discussion. Specifically, the economic and social drivers for patient engagement by radiologists will be explored. Next, the basics of building a patient advisor program will be reviewed from recruitment and training to deployment in projects. Because patients are already on social media and engaged, we will explore the opportunities that exist for radiologists and radiology practices to have a social media presence and interact with patients in a social media environment. Finally, including patients in the implementation of EHR patient portals will be used as an example of how to engage patients in radiology operations. Developed in conjunction with Radiology Leadership Institute.

Learning Objectives:

  1. Discuss roles that leaders can play in creating opportunities for patient and family centered care in radiology.
  2. Discuss elements needed to create a patient advisor program in radiology.
  3. Explore ways to recruit and include patients in operational radiology projects.

Sealing the Cracks: Monitoring Patients Who Need Follow-Up Based on Radiology Examinations

May 21, 2017 3:30pm ‐ May 21, 2017 5:00pm

Identification: ACR2017VM08

Credits: None available.

The purpose of this session is to focus on critical test results management (CTRM) - the reporting and communication of critical test results that could change patient management within minutes to hours. However, equally important and sometimes more challenging is the reporting of non-critical actionable findings: those that can impact the patient's health months to years later if downstream testing is not completed. While critical test results are often identified on emergency department patients or inpatients whose providers are in the hospital at the time, non-critical actionable findings are often identified in outpatients whose providers may not even belong to the same hospital or health system. In addition, determining if downstream testing has occurred months later further confounds this problem. The Imaging 3.0 initiative recommends that the radiologist be present during all three steps of an examination: before, during, and after. Taking an active role in the management of non-critical actionable findings aligns with the principles of Imaging 3.0. In this session, we identify some of the challenges associated with monitoring patients with incomplete follow-up and discuss some solutions that have been implemented in the emergency department, ambulatory setting, as well as across health systems to address this opportunity to improve the care of our patients.

Learning Objectives:

  1. Discuss some of the challenges associated with monitoring the follow-up of non-critical actionable findings identified on imaging.
  2. Compare and contrast the problems of reporting and communicating critical vs. non-critical actionable findings.
  3. Identify components of possible solutions to monitoring patients awaiting follow-up of non-critical actionable findings.
