Abstract

The critical role of information technology in the modern radiology practice was discussed as part of the Friday Imaging Symposium (“Challenges to Radiology in the New Millennium”) at the 2000 annual meeting of the RSNA. I was fortunate to have been given the opportunity as co-moderator (along with Lawrence R. Muroff, MD) to introduce Ramin Khorasani, MD, and Donald F. Schomer, MD, who shared their respective thought-provoking visions of the electronic-based radiology practice. Drs Khorasani and Schomer have kindly agreed to discuss in the following two articles how the role of information technology can help radiologists be value innovators in the modern radiology practice. The following comments attempt to provide a foundation for their discussions.
