Communication toolkit

We encourage you to use our resources or create your own patient-centered materials and messaging for your practice. To help you do this, we offer a variety of templates that you can customize with your logo, contact information and list of practice services. Choose from patient-focused or colleague-focused posters, letters, takeaway cards or presentations below.

If you have any questions or comments, please contact us at RadiologyCares@rsna.org.
