  • RADcares

  • The Radiology Cares campaign is designed to help radiology professionals optimize their patients' experiences throughout the continuum of their radiologic care. Purposeful dedication to maintaining a patient-centered radiology practice and engaging more directly with patients improves patients' awareness and appreciation of the integral role radiologists play in their healthcare. Patient-centeredness also enhances patients' understanding and comfort with their radiology tests and procedures and allows them to make better decisions about their healthcare. Radiology Cares provides radiologists and their practices with resources and educational materials to take patient-centered radiology from concept to practice, from scheduling through follow-up communications.
