Abstract

If you were about to undergo a radiologic procedure, what 5 things would you want? The authors propose a construct for patient-centered radiology. Five wishes of a prospective radiology patient are described: 1) the information to choose, 2) the right examination, 3) a safe examination, 4) effective communication of correctly interpreted results, and 5) a fair price. The authors posit that the American practice of radiology would be considerably different if our profession practiced patient-centered radiology.
