Franklin & Seidelmann strengthens subspecialty teleradiology support team

Franklin & Seidelmann Subspecialty Radiology : 22 November, 2007  (New Product)
Franklin & Seidelmann Subspecialty Radiology (F&S) has added 31 subspecialty radiologists to support the growing demand for subspecialty radiology expertise and secure the organization's position as the industry's largest subspecialty teleradiology network.
F&S radiologists are musculoskeletal, body, cardiac, breast and pediatric imaging specialists and neuroradiologists with Certificates of Added Qualification (CAQs). Many on the team of more than 100 are industry experts and academic leaders, and collectively they have published more than 8,000 lectures and papers that have appeared in peer-reviewed medical journals and textbooks.

'While our organization certainly takes pride in our dramatic growth this past year, we are just as proud of the tremendous credentials our team of radiologists brings to our company,' said Dr Peter Franklin, F&S medical director and co-founder. 'Our primary focus is to provide the highest quality reports and services to our referring physicians, so we must hire only the very best subspecialists we can find, wherever they may live.'

Franklin said the F&S model is particularly attractive to subspecialists today, who often seek work environments where they can focus on their particular areas of specialty and collaborate with their peers on the most demanding cases. Many of the radiologists on the F&S team have academic positions at some of the leading teaching hospitals and utilise their experiences with F&S to gain access to challenging cases for training purposes.

'Prior to joining F&S, subspecialty radiologists must be board certified, have a minimum of three to five years of experience including academic experience and/or fellowship, have read a minimum of 10,000 studies within their subspecialty areas, are published, and are motivated to focus exclusively on their subspecialties,' Franklin said.

'Additionally, prior to joining F&S, all radiologists pass a specialty-specific test that assesses the ability of the radiologist to integrate the provided clinical and laboratory information, observe significant findings, and utilise their knowledge and experience to provide a report that is descriptive, definitive, has the appropriate differential diagnosis, is directive in the management of the patient, and follows the accepted format as proposed by the American College of Radiology (ACR) Appropriateness Criteria. As part of the F&S team, radiologists interpret cases only in their subspecialty areas, create reports according to a study-specific format, and participate in a rigorous QA program - all of which contribute to the F&S mission of delivering the highest quality radiology services available,' added Franklin.
