ISMIE Offers Key Strategies to Reduce Risk for Radiologic Procedures

February 28, 2023

Physicians who perform diagnostic or interventional radiology play an important role in patient safety. Conducting, interpreting and communicating radiologic imaging, as well as performing interventional procedures, also comes with the potential for a variety of risks.
ISMIE has created radiology risk tips to help guide you with best practices. This new offering outlines key strategies to reduce risk before, during and after radiologic tests and procedures. Some of the risk mitigation strategies include strong processes in place for gathering patient information, patient communication, interpretation, documentation and reports, and tracking and follow-up to ensure the patient has the highest quality of care possible.
More detailed information on these risk mitigation strategies can be found in the radiology risk tips on ISMIE’s website.
