  American College of Radiology
& ‘Optimizing The Radiologists Work Environment’
 
     
     
 

Optimizing the Radiologist Work Environment is a hands-on and educational initiative developed in cooperation with The American College of Radiology Education Center, Evolve Technologies, Redrick Technologies and Barco.

The objective
Optimizing the Radiologists Work Environment was developed to be an extension of the ACR continuing education series. The objective is to demonstrate and educate how an optimized reading environment enhances the interpretation process and benefits the physical well being of the Radiologist by optimizing both the work zone and the overall room conditions. Enhanced ergonomics combined with optimal lighting and sound conditions has proven to increase comfort, productivity, and diagnostic accuracy.

The Inspiration
The significantly higher volumes of anatomical data, advanced visualization applications, and poorly engineered workspaces have resulted in a growing trend of higher stress levels and computer related injuries for Radiologists. Increases in work related musculoskeletal disorders, injury of the spine, eye fatigue and decreased visual acuity has driven many institutions to assess the value of ergonomic environments and their impact on accuracy and productivity. Optimizing the Radiologists Work Environment was created as an educational resource focusing on the systems and behavioral changes needed to achieve enhanced competence, maximum productivity, and increase safety for the Radiologist.
