The current status of faculty staffing and resident training in emergency radiology. Results of a survey.

Author information

Department of Radiology, Bowman-Gray School of Medicine, Winston-Salem, North Carolina.


The results of a survey of United States and Canadian radiology residency programs in hospitals maintaining major emergency departments indicate that (1) radiologic faculty assignment to emergency medicine may include "all faculty," "specific faculty," "specific and other faculty," "general," and "musculoskeletal" faculty; (2) a chief of emergency radiology section is designated in less than 35% of radiology departments providing emergency room services; (3) radiology resident rotation in emergency radiology occurs in less than 2/3 of the surveyed programs; and (4) radiology resident experience in emergency radiology ranges from two to 16 weeks in 40% of these programs, the remainder being "unspecified." The effect of this circumstance upon the emergency department patient care and resident teaching in emergency radiology is discussed and remedial suggestions presented.
