Right Scan Right Time

I have come across a valuable website that is something the imaging community has been missing for some time. RightScanRightTime is a platform that encourages patients and physicians to share imaging stories, but it contains resources that may be useful for both patients and doctors:

Scan 101: This section explains briefly, but clearly what modalities are used today in Radiology and Nuclear Medicine, so it is great for patient education.

Research: The site contains an easily-searchable data base of peer-reviewed research demonstrating the patient and economic value derived from medical imaging.

Stories of imaging: Here you, as a patient or as a doctor, can share your imaging story or read about someone else’s experience. I am sure this will help alleviate a lot of people’s fear of imaging modalities.

I highly recommed the site, though the Scan 101 section could be a little bit more detailed.
