Informatics in Radiology

May 25, 2021 | Radiology

What is Radiology Informatics?

Radiology Informatics, also known as imaging informatics, is the ability to use, rely on, and see accurate results with medical imaging in the healthcare space. It combines computer science, information science, as well as healthcare. Imaging services include things such as CT Scans, MRI’s, Mammograms, and Interventional Radiology. Radiology Informatics includes the system that stores all of the imaging information, as well as retrieves and transports film jackets for X-ray film.

 

Radiology Informatics includes Artificial Intelligence (AI) information in radiology, thus making it easier for medical professionals to use and get the results they need from imaging. They get data that inhabits the AI solution for reliability. AI-based solutions also undergo extensive testing to make sure that healthcare professionals are receiving accurate imaging for results, such as diagnosis.

Why is Informatics Important to Healthcare?

Informatics is extremely important to healthcare because it values the result to fast-track a solution to, for example, an illness such as cancer. Digital medical records also promote a patient to take control over their own health. Informatics also improves quality care, automates workflows, and has quick decision-making turnarounds. Informatics is also cost-effective and helps successfully managed care contracting.
