• RADcares

  • The Radiology Cares™ campaign is designed to help radiology professionals become more comfortable interacting directly with their patients, and to help patients become more comfortable with their radiology experiences. Direct communication between radiologists and patients is essential to improving patients’ awareness of the integral role radiologists play in their overall healthcare. Even more importantly, direct interactions with radiologists will enhance patients’ understanding and comfort with the tests and procedures they are undergoing. Ultimately, this will allow patients to make better decisions about their healthcare.

    Patients are the primary focus of radiologic care.   

    The Radiology Cares campaign mission is to encourage and facilitate radiologists’ meaningful engagement in the patient experience. 

    To promote: 

    • Alignment of radiology practice with patients’ needs and best interests. 
    • Optimal patient experience throughout the continuum of their radiologic care.  
    • Effective communications with patients and other healthcare providers, thus empowering patients to make informed decisions regarding their medical care. 

    Radiology professionals: 

    • Care for and about our patients. 
    • Treat every patient as we would a neighbor, friend or family member. 
    • See the patient behind the image. 
    • Align radiologic practice to serve our patients’ best interest.
