Confusion about time and challenges with technology did not deter Rich Kinsinger from delivering a very interesting and understandable presentation about the five radiology modalities Planar X-Rays, Nuclear Imaging, Ultrasound, CT (or CAT) Scans, and MRI.
He explained each modality, its history, and how each is used. He described how images are created in each and which is best for individual medical issues. He took us through the process of preparation for each method and told us what to expect from the procedures.
What he stressed most strongly was that you are entitled to your radiology report and a copy of the image that is produced. If you have need of experiencing one of the modalities, before you leave the office you should request the report and the image. You may have need of it in the future, and you cannot depend on "the system" to preserve it for you.
Rich also invited us to sign up to receive a synopsis of his presentation which will include the most important information for you to save for a possible future need.
Kudos to Bob Griffin for filling in with information about coming Friday Forums while Rich was dealing with computer issues!
