Quality improvement reports

We look to our members to provide insight on how to improve patient care in radiology. Each year, we invite members to submit abstracts on quality assessment and improvement initiatives in the field. Following a rigorous peer-review process, the abstracts are developed into quality improvement reports and unveiled at the RSNA annual meeting.

Dozens of reports are presented annually with topics such as:

  • Emergency response protocol in an outpatient imaging center
  • Order-to-scan time efficiency in emergency rooms
  • Transitioning from peer review to peer learning systems in group practice
  • Implementation of monitoring systems in academic medical centers
  • Reducing radiation dose in pediatric diagnostics
  • Improving medical imaging availability with limited resources to reduce patient wait time

We invite you to browse our collection of reports to see how radiologists are working together to improve patient care.
