Opening Sessions: Imaging Management in the UK
The first lecture of the opening session by Warden of the Royal College of Radiologists (RCR), Dr David Linsell, discusses imaging management issues in Oxfordshire, the county of which the ancient university city of Oxford is capital. The Dean of the RCR, Dr Gillian Markham, will then highlight the major current imaging management issues to which the RCR in its efforts has been a model for the rest of Europe. The remainder of this first session will be devoted to management issues related to PACS, including clinical risk.
Image Study Coding a Top Priority
The second Wednesday afternoon session addresses the important topic of image study coding, a session instigated by popular European request. Speakers from England, Scotland and The Netherlands will discuss their approaches and outcomes in this area, which will have important repercussions for radiologists and imaging departments when 'payment by results' is universally introduced as, most would argue, it inevitably will be.
