I chose Duke for fellowship because it is a large referral center with diverse pathology, unparalleled technology, and first class faculty, yet it is set in a relaxed, livable, and vibrant city.

In some states, information from ACR Select clinical decision support has been used to streamline a process known in the medical industry as “pre-certification.” Traditionally, pre-certification is a resource intensive and potentially time-consuming manual cost-containment process where an insurance company approves or denies an imaging test based on its judgement of medical appropriateness. This is problematic for two main reasons: 1) the information available to an insurance company can be different than the information available to the patient’s doctor, and 2) due to its manual nature the process can introduce delays into patient care. We hope ACR Select will simplify the patient’s experience for getting advanced medical imaging at Duke and maximize the impact of radiology exams on patient care.
