RadSite, a leading provider of assessment and accreditation services in the imaging industry, announces the inaugural issue of RadSite News, a resource that serves to spotlight the nation’s imaging quality issues and educate consumers of radiology services.
“Quite frankly, the quality-based mission of RadSite is one of the best-kept secrets in health care,” Garry Carneal, RadSite president & CEO, explains in the Winter 2012 issue of RadSite News. “With imaging becoming a more integral part of medical care – and the increased costs of advanced diagnostic and therapeutic interventions – RadSite is dedicated to ensuring that imaging systems are functioning properly.”
Cherrill Farnsworth, RadSite’s founder and chair of the Advisory Board, discusses how RadSite came to fruition. “RadSite, like its parent company HealthHelp, was created as a solution to a problem in the health care industry,” she says. “Our primary goal is to promote quality-based practices for imaging systems across the United States and its territories. Until RadSite, there was no governing body for this process. We are proud to be at the forefront of bringing radiation safety to the American people.”
Other columnists include Dr. William W. Orrison, RadSite chief medical officer and nationally-recognized radiologist, who discusses radiation safety; and Stewart Bushong, chief physics officer and professor, who talks about how physics has revolutionized medical imaging. The newsletter also features information on RadSite’s Consumer Guide to Imaging Modalities as well as a list of distinguished committee members who guide the direction of the company.
