Benjamin W. Strong, MD

Chief Medical Officer, Education Committee Chair. Dr. Strong is at the forefront of efforts to expand access to quality, affordable care through telemedicine. As CMO for the nation’s largest radiology practice, he collaborates with radiologist and hospital partners, uncovering opportunities to enhance the practice environment. Dr. Strong completed residency in internal medicine, then practiced emergency medicine before later being drawn to the fast-paced flow of diagnostic puzzles that is radiology.

A post-COVID radiologist job market, and what you should know

 

The 2021 radiologist job market finds radiologists at the mercy of those who would hire them. The imbalance has a lot to do with a certain public health crisis, so it may prove temporary. Regardless, radiologists seeking a new challenge would be shrewd to slow down their job search at least long enough to survey the situation.

Got five minutes? I’ve got some thoughts to share.

Video: What does a teleradiologist experience on the best radiology platform?

Behind the scenes, it takes a lot of complex technology and sophisticated software to make an advanced reading platform run so seamlessly. At vRad, our incomparable team of technologists and programmers are developing some of the most advanced applications in the medical industry, all with the goal of empowering radiologists to practice radiology free from unnecessary interruptions, distractions, logistical hurdles, and administrative burdens.

What vRad’s sale will mean for radiologists and clients

Our practice is for sale. And frankly, I’m pretty excited about it. Based on past experiences, the sale of vRad bodes well for the future of our practice, our staff and our clients.

These CT images lead to diagnosis of one of first COVID-19 patients in the U.S.

The video below includes images from the actual CT study of a COVID-19 patient in the United States. As this disease spreads rapidly worldwide, chest CTs are emerging as a critical diagnostic tool for this infection. The likelihood is high that more radiologists will be called upon for similar studies. Please share this case with your colleagues.

Beyond theory: Building on the success of radiology AI

Our AI models are at work today prioritizing critical cases, improving reporting accuracy and assisting billing compliance. But we’re just getting started. AI will permeate the practice and business of medical imaging to empower radiologists, conquer mountains of administrative burden and strengthen health care delivery.

How AI is accelerating care delivery in critical cases

The MEDNAX Imaging Platform employs multiple AI models in processing over 20,000 radiology studies each day. Silently prioritizing critical cases is one way our radiological AI is improving patient care.

Bite-sized CME: Accessible, relevant 15-minute Case Reviews

Radiologists are savoring new selections on their CME plan menu: Succinct, quarter-credit case reviews, available free from MEDNAX Radiology Education. Since April 2019, we’ve been making weekly additions to our library of 15-minute Radiology Case Reviews, and radiologists are eating them up.

Performance initiatives drive improvements despite market volatility and radiologist capacity constraints

While workflows change to balance growing demand for imaging studies with decreasing capacity, it is essential that patient care is not compromised. Radiology practices must be prepared to invest and adapt for the long term to ensure critical performance metrics remain solid in this volatile environment.

vRad’s Expanded Radiologist Education Platform Provides More Free Radiology CME

Since 2010, vRad has provided high-quality, free continuing medical education – but I’ve always thought that there was an opportunity to share more with the radiology community.

My background has allowed me to collect thousands of interesting cases, including many rare cases some radiologists may never have the chance to see in practice. This year we set out to share more cases than ever before by presenting this library of cases in a new interactive way, and on a new platform.
