I am also proud to have contributed to RSNA’s commitment to patient-centered care. Our patients are becoming increasingly involved in decisions about their health care, and we need to engage with them and foster a culture of patient-interaction within radiology.
Lastly, during my time on the Board, RSNA has emerged a leader in artificial intelligence research and education with a host of initiatives that enable our members and meeting attendees to understand how data and deep learning applications can be used to improve patient care.
HCB News: We often see elected leaders serve in a society and move to others when their terms are up. Do you think you’ll continue to pursue leadership roles?
I have already had leadership roles in several radiology organizations. As I approach retirement in 2020, I strongly believe that it is time for me to step aside and give others the wonderful opportunities that I have had.
HCB News: Can you offer a prediction of how you think radiology will change or evolve over the next five to 10 years?
With the astounding rate of technological advances in the field, it’s impossible to predict where we’ll be 10 years from now. However, my hope is that we’ll continue to transition to a value-based practice model, incorporating AI and other new technologies in ways that improve efficiency, so that we can devote ourselves to providing visible, meaningful care to our patients.Back to HCB News
