Add your picture to the CT scan to get more careful read

I read this in the Times of India and though it sounds kind of comic but somewhere makes some sense.
"Imagine sitting in a dark room all day, evaluating CT scans and other medical images on a computer screen but never actually seeing real patients. That’s life for many radiologists. But an intriguing Israeli study found adding photos of patients’ faces to the file made these doctors more meticulous when looking at the X-rays. They reported more details and said they felt more empathy for patients who were otherwise strangers. Adding patients’ photos is a simple, low-tech way to reap rewards for both doctors and their patients, the researchers concluded."
