Image sharing could cut unnecessary tests: RSNA


 A new medical image-sharing network is being touted as tool that can help reduce unnecessary exams and cut patient radiation exposure…So far, Mt. Sinai Medical Center, a 1,039-bed hospital in New York; the UCSF Medical Center, a 660-bed hospital in San Francisco; and the University of Maryland Medical Center, a 702-bed hospital in Baltimore, have enrolled patients in the network. Mayo Clinic (Rochester, Minn.) and the University of Chicago Medical Center (Illinois) are expected to enroll patients.
