Do patients consider us (Radiologists) as Doctors?
There is an interesting article in the British Journal of Radiology attending the breast clinic who required imaging (mammography and/or ultrasound) were asked to complete a questionnaire. Surprisingly, 76% of patients thought that radiologists were radiographers and only 14% knew that radiologists were medical doctors. Nearly 40% of patients did not consider that radiologists had a role to play in their care.
Guys we need to work on our public image building sooner than we think!!
