Abstract

In this survey-based study, we attempted to gain deeper insights into the perspectives of patients in a contemporary radiology department. How well do they understand the role of radiologists in their care? What role(s) would they like radiologists to play? Specifically, do they value the opportunity to interact directly with radiologists? And what effect do such encounters have on their assessments of the quality of their care experiences in the radiology department?
