No radiology professionals in the google advisory board!!

Google’s decision to set up an advisory group has sparked controversy as well as congratulation. While the lack of nursing professionals or health librarians has caused a storm of protest on health blogs, it also appears it’s also a ‘no show’ from the radiology community too. The stated composition includes healthcare experts from “provider organizations, consumer and disease-based groups, physician organizations, research institutions, policy foundations, and other fields”.While the list of participants is impressive there’s no obvious representation from medical imaging professionals. In response the head of the American College for Radiology (ACR) Arl Van Moore wrote to Google to say it was pleased to hear that the advisory group was being established: "However, it is unfortunate, and frankly quite puzzling, that Google has apparently chosen not include a representative from radiology, a vital, and increasingly far reaching area of medicine."
