Ergonomics for Radiologists with Disabilities: Tailoring Accessible Workspaces


How well does your workstation and platform meet your needs to work efficiently, effectively, and without frustration?

In my five years working with radiologists as a trainer on the vRad platform, I observed a wide range of needs and backgrounds. This experience highlighted a critical, yet often overlooked, aspect in our field: the need for accessible workstations tailored for radiologists with disabilities or other physical limitations. This includes radiologists with pre-existing accessibility needs, those who experience an unexpected health event, and those who may develop long-term issues such as a repetitive motion disorder.

12 Radiologist Safety Nets to Reduce Stress, Improve Care, and Make Radiology Enjoyable Again

This is the first in a series of blog posts we’re calling “@vRad” where radiologists can get a sneak peek behind the curtain to see what it’s like to read as a vRad radiologist. 

As radiologic systems trainers at vRad, my partner and I are responsible for training all new radiologists on our system during their onboarding. In other words, we know the system like the back of our hands.

Today’s topic is radiologist safety nets. What do I mean by this? In a nutshell, a safety net is something that helps radiologists in their day-to-day work like automated reminders for key information or technology features to minimize errors. Let’s look at 12 safety nets vRad has put in place for our radiologists.
