Patients And Radiology, The Results Are In (Sort Of)

Patients And Radiologists

This past week I played with the Twitter poll function. I happened to ask 2 separate questions on the topic of radiology from the patients perspective.

The first question was to find out from patients if a radiologist was available to speak to them about their imaging exam, if they would want to speak to them.

Out of 72 people, 86% said yes.

The next question I asked was related to the use of contrast media and patient education. I asked patients when they preferred to be educated about the use of contrast media.

Out of 37 people, 76% preferred to be educated about the use and risks of contrast media the day the exam was ordered.

Since the polls can only be open for 24 hours, I decided to continue to poll on my own site.

I have added 3 more simple questions, along with a comment section. As always, you can also add comments and share more thoughts on this topic leveraging the #MyIdealPtExp hashtag.

Please share and together let’s change radiology one patient at a time.
