Basic Neuroradiology – Chapter 9 – Don’t argue

While it can seem like a good idea to argue with ordering providers, it seldom pays off in the long run. You’re essentially playing the odds that you are always right, and radiologists read A LOT of studies. Eventually you’ll be embarrassed at yourself.

Plus, much of the arguing comes from inner insecurity about having to read more studies or a complex study that you don’t understand. Be confident, advise ordering clinicians to the best of your ability, and help them.

The level of this lecture is appropriate for medical students, junior residents, and trainees in other specialties who have an interest in basic concepts of neuroradiology.
