Dear CT Insider,

Errors and discrepancies in daily practice are thought to occur in as many as 5% of imaging examinations reported, but reliable evidence about the causes of these errors is relatively thin on the ground.

Recent research carried out by Dr. Stefan Lazic, a London-based radiologist, has sought to fill this void by asking whether reporting speed is a major factor. The findings of his analysis of 57 CT and x-ray discrepancies over two years will come as a surprise to many people. Don't miss today's news report.

This newsletter highlights only a few of the many articles posted over the past month or so in the CT Community. For the full list, check out the lineup below.
