Fostering research by radiologists: recommendations of the 1991 Summit meeting.

Author information

Department of Radiology, University of Arizona, Tucson.


At the annual Radiology Summit Meeting sponsored by the Intersociety Commission of the American College of Radiology, leaders of U.S. and Canadian radiologic organizations met in part to discuss ways to improve radiology research. Support by radiology departments and radiologic organizations is currently not sufficient to improve the research of the specialty. Five issues of central importance to improving research are (a) the need for a definition of radiology research, (b) a lack of financial resources, (c) a lack of mentors, (d) hesitancy to embark on a research career, and (e) conflicts between clinicians and researchers. The adoption of 31 recommendations regarding these five issues was urged.
