At last week’s Radiological Society of North America Annual Meeting, radiologists were encouraged to use social media to guide patients to valuable online resources—including Cancer Commons. Social media gives doctors a great opportunity to connect with patients, said Elliot Fishman, MD, at the meeting in Chicago. He urged radiologists to use social media platforms to promote sites like radiologyinfo.org that can help patients learn and be more engaged in their own care.

A stronger online presence could also allow radiologists to monitor and respond to reviews, improving their relationships with patients. Read more at Medscape.
