Process Improvement (PI) Methodology The radiology department had a set of policies and procedures (P&P) that set the rules and sequences of steps that needed to be taken for a variety of processes. However, the departmental P&Ps did not depict or account for the concurrent processes that take place in the real world.

Covering the entire spectrum of this fast-changing field, Diagnostic Imaging: Oncology, second edition, is an invaluable resource for radiologists and surgical and medical oncologists—anyone who requires an easily accessible, highly visual reference covering cancer imaging and staging.

A team of renowned experts in radiology, oncology, and body imaging provide carefully updated. In this report, the committee employs the terminology “the diagnostic process” to convey diagnosis as a process.

Diagnostic imaging lets doctors look inside your body for clues about a medical condition. A variety of machines and techniques can create pictures of the structures and activities inside your body.

The type of imaging your doctor uses depends on your symptoms and the part of your body being examined. Many imaging tests are painless and easy. Ensure That Health Information Technologies Support Patients and Health Care Professionals in the Diagnostic Process.

All aspects of the radiology workflow are addressed, from imaging appropriateness, examination scheduling, and patient preparation through to imaging protocol optimization (including radiation dose management), modality operations, reporting (including structured reporting), and report communication.

The book highlights innovative IT tools. Quality improvement is never a done deal–it is an ongoing process. Our initial focus in the Centre of Excellence is to use the latest informatics tools in radiology to capture the “metadata” associated with computed tomography diagnostic imaging and use this information to optimize the radiation dose our patients receive for routine.

Medical imaging is the technique and process of creating visual representations of the interior of a body for clinical analysis and medical intervention, as well as visual representation of the function of some organs or tissues ().Medical imaging seeks to reveal internal structures hidden by the skin and bones, as well as to diagnose and treat : B.

As healthcare continues to march forward with numerous reforms, it falls to its various accrediting bodies to set standards to guide actual progress. Radiology is subject to many such accrediting bodies, but perhaps the largest is the Joint Commission, which oversees accreditation for all healthcare specialties.
