In a pioneering effort at Kansas University, a radiologist and a pathologist are working side-by-side to review each other’s primary images and issue a single, integrated diagnostic report for breast cancer patients! The big, positive surprise from this groundbreaking collaboration is measurable improvement in diagnostic accuracy, leading to improved patient outcomes.

If you're a pathologist or radiologist, what does this mean for you? More than likely, it means a future of increased collaboration. Instead of separate clinical silos, pathologists and radiologists will work side by side, sharing each other's primary images and producing a single, unified diagnostic report for clinicians.

To understand the benefits of a collaborative working relationship between pathologists and radiologists, join the audioconference on August 19, 2009 that features two innovators-pathologist Ossama Tawfik, M.D. and radiologist Mark Redick, M.D.—both from The University of Kansas (KU). Targeting micro-calcifications in breast cancers, you'll learn how, together, their reviews of the radiology and pathology images triggered significant revisions to the original diagnostic reports from each specialist.

  • Best practices for collaboration between the radiology and pathology groups in your hospital and community.
  • How to pick the right clinical target for an integrated radiology/pathology diagnostic service.
  • The importance of digital imaging and teleconferencing when pathologists and radiologists are in separate locations.
  • Pitfalls to avoid when establishing an effective integrated diagnostic service.
  • How to identify where discordance happens when radiologists and pathologists work independently on the same case.
  • Cross-training requirements to help pathologists and radiologists better understand how to read each other’s primary images.
  • How to find the time and space to conduct joint case evaluations: surprising solutions.
  • How to track improvements in diagnostic precision and measure the resulting gains in patient outcomes.
  • Why clinicians like the integrated imaging/histopathology diagnosis, and how to market the shared clinical service to generate more case referrals—and revenue!
