Learning Radiology Comes Out in 2nd Edition
Dr. Herring's popular and best-selling textbook is now in its second edition, published by Elsevier/Saunders in the Spring, 2011. The fundamental text adds new content and expands subject matters not touched upon on by the website. The book also links to 50 interactive quizzes and tutorials that reinforce the text’s contents, which are available on StudentConsult.com, Elsevier’s website for students, with purchase of the text.
Radiologist Named Top Doc by Philadelphia magazine
Dr. Copit, a recognized "Top Doc" by Philadelphia magazine, is a fellowship-trained radiologist who dedicates her practice to breast imaging. As Director of Breast Imaging, she combines the latest technologies with a compassionate, caring approach to ensure that her patients receive the best care. Dr. Copit trains other radiologists to perform breast ultrasound and minimally invasive breast biopsies.
LearningRadiology.com: 25 Most Influential in Radiology in 2009
LearningRadiology.com, Dr. Herring’s on-line educational website, was named one of RT Image magazine’s "25 Most Influential in Radiology in 2009." The magazine noted the reach of the website, as well as its branching out into the top, downloaded medical video podcast on iTunes, its use of the social network Twitter to post imaging-related pearls, and the Learning Radiology textbook from Elsevier.
New Ultrasound Suite Opens
A newly enlarged and totally renovated Ultrasound Suite has opened to patient care, which greatly reduces patient waiting times, allowing radiologists and residents greater opportunity for hands-on training in this key modality. Einstein residents receive superb ultrasound training.
The department utilizes a direct digital mammography system allowing for enterprise-wide transmission of mammographic studies and instant retrieval of historical studies. Installation of digital mammography was accompanied by an extensive physical renovation of our very busy Women’s Center and an expansion of our professional faculty. The conversion of mammography from film to digital media represented the last in the department’s total changeover to digital imaging.
Voice Recognition Technology Speeds Reports to Clinicians
Einstein’s Department of Radiology uses PowerScribe Voice Recognition technology to electronically transcribe reports the instant they are dictated. The system decreases report turnaround time to the clinician, and allows radiology residents to “pre-dictate” preliminary reports pending review of the case and approval of the report by a faculty radiologist.
Filmless and Paperless - Totally PACS
The Department of Radiology implemented a Fuji Medical Systems enterprise-wide Picture Archiving and Storage System (PACS) several years ago, and has been totally filmless and paperless in all modalities across all entities of the Einstein Network for several years. Reading Rooms were redesigned and renovated for the PACS architecture. As part of the PACS project, the Hospital installed a high-speed, fiber-optic network to carry the data. All studies and reports are available via the internet through a password-protected, web-based application.
Web-based Radiology Learning Resource Averages Over Ten Thousand Visitors a Day
Dr. Herring developed and maintains an award-winning, web-based learning resource at http://www.learningradiology.com. LearningRadiology is an educational site aimed at medical students and radiology residents-in-training containing lectures, lecture handouts, Cases of the Week, downloadable images, online quizzes, differential diagnosis lists and study flashcards primarily in the areas of chest, GI, cardiac, and bone radiology. The site contains a special section for medical student education. The site receives over a million visitors every year, who will access over 25 million pages of content this year and sponsors video podcasts, and a mobile version, as well. The video podcasts alone are downloaded over a thousand times each day. Feel free to visit the site.
Einstein Residents Accepted into Outstanding Fellowship Programs
Massachusetts General Hospital, Stanford University, the University of California at San Diego, Brigham and Women’s Hospital, Wake Forest University, the Hospital of the University of Pennsylvania, Northwestern University, Emory University, the University of California at Los Angeles, Jefferson University Hospital, Duke University, and the Hospital for Special Surgery in New York are amongst the latest in a series of outstanding Fellowship programs into which our residents have been accepted. Einstein residents have always obtained premier caliber fellowships. Almost 99% of our graduating residents, well-above the national average, have chosen to take a post-graduate fellowship over the last 15 years.
