Moore QT, Bruno MA. Radiol Technol. 2023;94(6):409-418.

Fostering a culture of safety is a key objective across all clinical areas, including radiology. This secondary analysis of survey data found that radiologists working night shifts and shifts exceeding 12 hours have poor perceptions of teamwork and of leadership actions concerning radiation safety.
Brown SD, Bruno MA, Shyu JY, et al. Radiology. 2019;293:30-35.
This commentary reviews general aspects of the disclosure movement, supportive evidence, and challenges associated with liability concerns. The authors discuss barriers unique to radiology that have hindered acceptance of the practice and highlight how communication-and-resolution programs can support radiologist participation in disclosure conversations.
Waite S, Scott JM, Drexler I, et al. Clin Imaging. 2018;51:266-272.
Communication failures affect safe care delivery across the spectrum of practice. This review highlights steps in the imaging cycle that are vulnerable to communication errors, such as clinical history taking, report compilation, and results notification. The authors provide recommendations for radiologists to reduce the potential for errors that will impact the timeliness and accuracy of care delivery.
Waite S, Scott JM, Legasto A, et al. AJR Am J Roentgenol. 2017;209:629-639.
Radiology interpretation errors can contribute to diagnostic error. This commentary explores other areas of the imaging process that exhibit weaknesses such as incomplete ordering and delays. The authors highlight health information technology as a strategy for improving the system to support safe care.
Abujudeh H, Kaewlai R, Shaqdan K, et al. American Journal of Roentgenology. 2017;208.
This review summarizes key principles of high quality care and how they can be applied to augment radiology practice. Recommended safety improvement strategies included plan-do-study-act cycles, change management, and balanced scorecards.
Waite S, Scott JM, Gale B, et al. AJR Am J Roentgenol. 2017;208:739-749.
Interpretive radiology errors can result in delays that contribute to patient harm. This commentary describes human factors that affect diagnostic accuracy and reviews strategies to address weaknesses at the individual and systems level.
