Considering the continued focus on quality over quantity and the rise of online reviews, patient experience has never been more important in healthcare than it is today. A new study published by Radiology tracked one radiology department’s efforts to assess its own patient experience, identify improvement opportunities and make a difference.
David Widmann, President and CEO of Konica Minolta Healthcare discusses the evolution of dynamic imaging with Greg Freiherr of Imaging Technology News
The pressure to be efficient and effective when imaging outpatients may be rising due to imaging’s increased presence outside hospital settings. The challenges that accompany this trend are exemplified at busy orthopedic clinics, such as the Tallahassee Orthopedic Clinic (TOC) in Tallahassee, Fla.
Recently published results noted a trend during the past century in the timing of epiphyseal fusion, in both initiation and completion of the process, for most hand and wrist bones in pediatric patients.
Researchers performed a retrospective, observational study of 1,292 children who participated in the Fels Longitudinal Study. Each patient had one to 39 serial, left hand-wrist radiographs during childhood.
A woman in Colorado was left stunned after she found herself with a $5,500 bill from a visit to the University of Colorado (UC) Health Emergency Room in Littleton, according to a report from KMGH-TV.
Advanced U-Arm – This is ideal for Orthopedic practices where imaging versatility, flexibility, capacity, and speed are key. The system swivels into place, producing high-resolution images while a patient is standing, sitting or lying down. Advanced imaging enables excellent visualization of soft tissue and bones from a single study, further enhancing throughput. It’s an excellent space-saving alternative to a bulky table-based system.

Orthopedic surgeons who perform joint reconstruction on patients who are obese should develop a plan to accomplish that goal in a way that is safe and successful for patients, according to a presenter who focused his talk on key considerations for performing total knee arthroplasty in this group of patients.
Konica Minolta Debuts Product to Bring Motion to X-ray 12, 2018 Wayne, N.J.-based Konica Minolta Healthcare has unveiled a product that helps clinicians visualize movement using conventional x-ray. Known as Dynamic Digital Radiography (DDR) or X-ray in Motion, this new modality captures movement in a single exam and allows the clinician to observe the dynamic interaction of anatomical structures, such as soft tissue and bone, with physiological changes over time.
Most adolescent patients with femoroacetabular impingement may be treated nonoperatively and have significant improvements in outcome scores at the 2-year minimum follow-up, according to recently published results.
This is an example of how artificial intelligence (AI) can help improve patient care by pulling together patient data from numerous sources n the elect if medical records that are specific to a patient’s diagnosis and treatment for a specific disease state. This is Siemens’ AI-Pathway Companion introduced at the Radiological Society Of North America (RSNA) 2018 meeting this week.
