The Cost of Non-Compliance and How to Avoid it | Instructional Design Lite

Picture this: someone on your team has gone the “extra mile” only to have those solid efforts backfire so far and so hard that now not just your team will suffer, but your company may miss earnings goals and lose gains made in the marketplace for at least a year.[1]

Why vRad? Radiologist Lifestyle Profile: Siva Bodagala, MD

It’s Wednesday afternoon at 2:59 p.m.: time for vRad radiologist Siva Bodagala to go to work.

He ascends a flight of stairs in his suburban Houston home and arrives in his home-office promptly at 3 p.m.

The 60-second commute is about 60 minutes shorter than the one required to get him to his previous job as an assistant professor of radiology at the University of Texas Medical Branch (UTMB)—Galveston Campus.

And it’s immensely less stressful.

How to Become a Radiologist: The Road to Radiology (feat. Dr. Matthew Zapala)

Remember fidgeting in bed, waiting to open the greatest present you ever asked for the night before your birthday? Or how about sitting in high school, nervously anticipating whether or not “studying” paid off, as the teacher passed out a chapter exam?

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.

Interesting Radiology Cases Presented by CMO Benjamin W. Strong, MD

As part of our website refresh, I wanted to build upon the educational materials we already provide--such as CMEs and Industry webinars--by improving the way we present interesting cases.

Building upon the educational format I have developed for presentations, we hope to have built a tool that is educational and interactive. 

Guest Blog Post by Juno Min, MD

We are pleased to share the following guest blog post by Juno Min, MD, describing his first mission to Nukus, Uzbekistan, through vRad’s Partnership with MSF (Médecins Sans Frontières).

Office Ergonomics for Teleradiologists

Ergonomics is the study of people’s interaction with their environment and provides principles and theories for proper design of the workplace.  Ergonomics is a concept that has been around for quite some time, but it is often something that we don’t spend a lot of time thinking about as we go about our workday.  If you find yourself sitting at a desk for long periods of time, you may experiences aches and pains that can be eliminated with a few adjustments to your work environment.  Not only does ergonomics help you be more comfortable at work, but can reduce stress, prevent injuries and improve productivity.
