Radiology Department

How did digital technologies change your profession?

When the digital technologies were involved in radiologists work three were the main features that have affected clinical practice: easy access to images (also to prior image, that is very important, especially in oncology), new capacity to show the images to clinicians over the Internet, and the 3D tool that has made it possible to interpret and show large image materials in volumes instead of as separate images. Previously, radiologists worked more as individuals in the health care organization; they were not as involved as they are today in the treatment decision of patients.
