Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


OBJECTIVE. Although trust is a topic infrequently discussed at professional meetings and in professional journals, it constitutes the foundation of radiologic excellence. Trust is an attribute of persons; it cannot be attained by technology. CONCLUSION. Clarifying the meaning of trust and understanding how it is built up and lost and the steps radiologists can take to enhance trust are vital professional missions.
