Radiologist continue to be asked to perform more tasks, read more studies and integrate more
information, all within the same amount of time. The stress from such productivity demands
has been shown to increase the radiologists risk of burnout and repetitive stress injury (RSI).
Recent scientific literate has documented the prevalence of these afflictions, their impact, and
presented recommendations reducing their risk with proper reading room and PACS
workstation ergonomics. Other reading room factors such as acoustics, lighting and
environmental controls can reduce visual fatigue and distraction that enable radiologists to
operate at their high efficiency and reduce the risk from burnout and RSI’s.
This webinar will review the risks radiologists face, how they arise and what can be done to
minimize them. Real-world experience will be shared, along with educational information about
ergonomics and reading room design.
- Understand the causes of repetitive stress injuries in radiologists today and how to eliminate
- Gain awareness of the ergonomic elements in the reading room are critical to reducing the
risk of radiologist visual fatigue and burnout.
- Hear first-hand experience how one radiology department has realized these benefits at their
