The elusive incidental finding — Part 1

from Diagnostic Imaging (free login required)

When patients come to the emergency room with chest pain and leave with advice to follow up for an unrelated lung nodule, will they get the requested imaging? Will that primary care doctor (if there is one) receive a copy of the emergency department (ED) discharge or radiology report? And if so, is the physician likely to remember to send the patient for additional tests months later? If you ask hospital-based radiologists, the answer to these questions is often a resounding and frustrated “no!” more
