Video: Radiology Collaboration

There is a great deal of collaboration, according to Dr. Benjamin Strong. Dr. Strong believes there is more collaboration at vRad than in any other practice model he’s worked in, including private and academic settings. To confer on a case requires physically relocating the radiologist or the film, or making phone calls. On vRad’s current system, radiologists use instant messaging. At midnight there are typically over 70 radiologists working online and 70 people to consult with. Dr. Strong says it’s been an educational experience and has helped to improve search patterns and sensitivity as well as broaden differentials.
