VIDEO: RSNA President Bruce Haffty previews the big conference in Chicago

Haffty, an accomplished radiation oncology clinician, teacher and researcher in the Rutgers University health system in New Jersey, also answered our questions on three points derived from his topic:

  • Why is it newly important in 2022-23 for diagnostic radiologists—and other “non-patient-facing” physicians—to regard the value of their work from the patient’s eye view?
  • How should they see this reset in mindset as similar to—and different from—the same challenge in years past?
  • Looking ahead to 2023, what do you see as the single readiest area of opportunity for pure diagnosticians to refocus on patients?

“I think RSNA 2022 is going to be a great meeting,” Haffty volunteers, pointing out that this year’s theme is “Empowering Patients and Partners in Care.”

“A patient-centered focus is something that many medical specialty meetings are focusing on,” Haffty adds. “There’s such a big emphasis now on the value of what we do and what that means to the patient. RSNA brings together a lot of people and we’re all looking forward to it.”

Haffty will be followed late Sunday afternoon in the Arie Crown Theater by Elizabeth Morris, MD, radiology chair at the University of California, Davis School of Medicine. Her talk is titled, “Doctor as Patient: Imagining Cancer Survival for All.”

Innovation at work

Momentum. You feel it when you’ve got it. And when it lags, you’re pushing harder to regain your stride. In radiology, maintaining momentum is core to keeping radiologists, workflow, decision-making and patient care moving forward. An enterprise imaging solution is the orchestrator that’s making it happen.
