Benefits of Radiologist-Patient Consultations After Neck Ultrasound
Radiologist-patient consultations after neck ultrasound are desired by most patients and reduce anxiety without a significant increase in examination time, a new study found.
The study aimed to evaluate the patient experience and time involved in radiologist-patient consultations at the time of examination as part of a patient-centered medical approach.
The patients who underwent neck ultrasound in this study were generally satisfied with the radiological service that was provided. However, anxiety levels can be decreased and the patients’ wishes can be fulfilled by informing patients of their US results directly after the examination.
