Lung cancer screening with low-dose chest CT has been demonstrated to reduce lung cancer mortality among a subset of high-risk current and former smokers. Despite randomized trial evidence and widespread guideline recommendations, uptake of lung cancer screening among currently eligible individuals remains poor. Recent studies estimate that less than 5% of all eligible individuals have undergone screening. Moreover, inappropriate screening of ineligible individuals seems to be common, and among those who have been screened, follow-up may also be poor...

The purpose of the survey study was to understand the majority preference with regards to the wait time for screening mammogram results, whether prompt communication of mammogram results was of importance to patients, whether the time frame to schedule an additional imaging follow-up appointment after an abnormal screening mammogram was important to patients, and how patients preferred to be given their screening mammogram results. There were 2,245 patients who participated in the survey. A majority of patients preferred to receive screening mammogram results on Friday (n = 1,868, 85...

PURPOSE: The ACR Commission on Human Resources conducts an annual workforce survey to determine the makeup of the radiology workforce and to identify potential plans for hiring new staff in an attempt to better understand our profession. METHODS: The Practice of Radiology Environment Database group leaders were asked to complete an electronic survey regarding the makeup of their present workforce by subspecialty as well as the numbers and types of subspecialists hired in 2017 and the numbers and types of subspecialists expected to be hired in 2018 and 2019...

RATIONALE AND OBJECTIVES: Diagnostic radiology training programs are less diverse than graduating US medical school classes and the patient populations they serve. Inclusion of physicians who are underrepresented minorities in medicine (URMM) can strengthen the profession and help to meet the needs of an increasingly diverse population. Our Department of Radiology developed and implemented a plan to increase the number of URMMs in our residency applicant pool and residency training program...

PURPOSE: We evaluated patterns of event reporting across five clinical locations within an academic radiation oncology department, with the goal of better understanding variability across sites. METHODS AND MATERIALS: We analyzed 1,351 events reported to a departmental incident learning system over 1 calendar year across the five locations with respect to volume of events, event type, process map location of origin and detection, and event reporter. RESULTS: We found marked variability in reporting patterns, including reporting rate, event type, event severity, event location of origin and detection within the departmental process map, and discipline of event reporters...

Efrén J Flores, Diego López, Randy C Miles, McKinley Glover, Constance D Lehman, H Benjamin Harvey, Anand K Narayan
PURPOSE: Regular contact with a primary care physician (PCP) is associated with increased participation in screening mammography. Older studies suggested that PCP interaction may have a smaller effect on screening mammography uptake among racial and ethnic minorities compared with whites, but there is limited contemporary evidence about the effect of PCP interaction on screening mammography uptake across different racial and ethnic groups. The purpose of this study was to evaluate the association between PCP contact and longitudinal adherence with screening mammography guidelines over a 10-year period across different racial/ethnic groups...

PURPOSE: The aim of this study was to develop and validate a computational clinical decision support system (DSS) on the basis of CT radiomics features for the prediction of lymph node (LN) metastasis in gastric cancer (GC) using machine learning-based analysis. METHODS: Clinicopathologic and CT imaging data were retrospectively collected from 490 patients who were diagnosed with GC between January 2002 and December 2016. Radiomics features were extracted from venous-phase CT images...

PURPOSE: To assess the temporary health impact of prostate multiparametric MRI (mpMRI) and transrectal prostate biopsy in an active surveillance prostate cancer population. METHODS: A two-arm institutional review board-approved HIPAA-compliant prospective observational patient-reported outcomes study was performed from November 2017 to July 2018. Inclusion criteria were men with Gleason 6 prostate cancer in active surveillance undergoing either prostate mpMRI or transrectal prostate biopsy...

PURPOSE: To evaluate grade-level readability of dense breast notification letters (DBNs) and popular websites. METHODS: HIPAA-compliant, institutional review board-exempt study. As of April 2018, letter characteristics and grade-level readability were evaluated from states with mandated text using five readability metrics, one of which was the Flesch-Kincaid Grade Level. For states that had mandated DBNs in 2016, the 2016 data were compared with 2018. Readability was also assessed for common websites about dense breasts...
