Sneak Peek at Advancements in Diagnostic Imaging: Past Milestones to Future Possibilities


“Innovation is the key to our future.” This is the theme at this year’s RSNA annual meeting, and it’s also the inspiration for a recent McKesson eBook, Advancements in Diagnostic Imaging: Past Milestones to Future Possibilities.

Innovations in diagnostic imaging
In the eBook, the best and brightest in radiology offer their insights on subjects like the following:

– Artificial intelligence
– Application integration
– Image & data management
– Structured reporting
– Workflow efficiency

Here are just a few samples of the rich insights and perspectives represented in the eBook.

A Sneak Peek
“I don’t worry about computers taking over our jobs, but we must use the advances in artificial intelligence to enhance our ability to diagnose and manage disease, recognizing that we must use the available technology for the maximum benefit of patients.”

– Giles Maskell, President of The Royal College of Radiologists

“Smarter consumers and the advent of alternative healthcare structures, such as the ACO (Accountable Care Organization), will place further pressure on study accessibility across entities. Today, patients rely primarily on healthcare providers to manage their study content. A more sophisticated patient may choose to have greater personal control over managing their study content.”

– Joseph Marion, Consultant & Principal, Healthcare Integration Strategies LLC

“I think the biggest advance for the future would be to have all clinical patient information on our EMR, so we have instant access to all the prior images, and intelligent access to all of the relevant prior clinical information. That would really be something to write home about.”

– Leigh S. Shuman, MD, Radiologist, Lancaster Radiology Associates 

“In the next few years, one area that is likely to see rapid advancement is the use of deep learning methods that enable predictive analytics to dramatically change the diagnostic process. The notion of having a data service “crawl” through volumes of clinical data to provide radiologists highly relevant collateral aids and specific protocol recommendations will become commonplace.”

– Joe Biegel, VP of Corporate Strategy & Business Development, McKesson Technology Solutions
