Given radiology’s central role in the patient pathway, radiology efficiency and the ability to communicate actionable reports are key for patient outcomes. This is particularly important in cancer care as diagnoses are often time-critical, the cases are complex, and the treatment chain typically involves multiple specialists.
At ECR, we showcased our view of patient-centered cancer care and demonstrate how we support radiology in exceeding the expectations of referring physicians and their patients through:
In our booth, we also demonstrated how multi-disciplinary team meetings can be held with a common technical platform for radiology and pathology PACS with functionality supporting efficient MDT meetings.
We spoke with key opinion leaders from the Netherlands, Sweden, the UK, and the US to better understand the changes affecting radiology, and listened as they weighed in on the most important challenges and developments in the field.
Four strategically important areas emerged where radiology can bring about better cancer care.
