With remote reading, fluctuating imaging volumes and increased specialization, radiology departments can easily become overburdened, often with a backlog of unread exams. In this webinar, radiology leaders will discuss the challenges of managing workload distribution in an evolving healthcare reality and the strategies they've employed to tackle the issue and create better balance among radiologists. Speakers are John Y. Kim, M.D., M.P.H., Gautam Agrawal, M.D., and Marla B.K. Sammer, M.D. The webinar, co-sponsored by Nuance, will be moderated by Anjali Agrawal, M.D.  Register.
