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.

I left vRad. This is why I came back.

After 11 years as a vRad radiologist – 3 of them as Clinical Chief of Abdominal Imaging – I left in 2019 for a teleradiology position at another well-known national practice. Just 9 months later, I’m back. Here’s why.

8 reasons radiologists prefer to work for vRad

Skilled radiologists can be selective about where they practice. Following are the top reasons over 500 across the U.S. have chosen a job with vRad.

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.

Charitable spirit cultivates vRad partnership with RAD-AID

3 to 4 billion people lack access to medical imaging and its potentially life-saving diagnostic insights, according to the World Health Organization (WHO). RAD-AID was founded in 2008 to answer this need. What began with a few radiology professionals has grown to include more than 10,000 volunteers from 100 countries, 75 university-based chapters, on-site programs in over 30 countries, and an annual conference on global health radiology.

$77,000 to RAD-AID thanks to vRad radiologists and First Read Initiative

I was proud to deliver a check for $77,719 to RAD-AID on behalf of my generous vRad and MEDNAX colleagues at the 2019 RAD-AID Conference in Washington, DC. In just our second year, First Read Initiative added nicely to our inaugural-year gift of just over $72,000.

Why radiologists must continue to think pink

I love to watch the colors change in October, when pink is in full display during Breast Cancer Awareness month. With each hot-pink scarf, T-shirt and pair of football cleats I see, I’m reminded of the vital role radiologists have played – and continue to play – in combatting this disease.

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.

Why teleradiology may be the antidote for burnout

Burnout has become commonplace among medical professionals, especially radiologists. While increasing caseloads are part of the picture, much of the stress physicians are experiencing comes from areas that distract them from patient care – shifting regulatory requirements, confounding processes and systems that complicate medical practice, hospital politics, or challenges to balancing work life with home life.
