Giving Tuesday, December 2019

By Terry Bucknall, CRA, FAHRA
So many of you have supported our 2019 Annual Appeal! I’d love to celebrate our year and give an opportunity for every AHRA member to participate as we wrap-up this year’s campaign to raise funds for scholarships, dues waivers and educational opportunities for our members.

Thanksgiving

By Chris Tomlinson, MBA, CRA, FAHRA
When we think about Thanksgiving and Giving Tuesday, it’s important to think about how fortunate we are as leaders and to reflect on those individuals who helped us along our journey. Too often we are focused on our next goal or accomplishment. Sometimes we need to reflect and thank our teams and those who mentored and helped us along the way.

Pennsylvania Area Meeting

By Tom Wall, RDMS, RVT
I attended the Pennsylvania Area meeting on October 29th 2019 at Lehigh Valley Medical Center in Allentown Pennsylvania. As I was trying to find my way in I met one of the sponsors of the event from Nuance. We just started chatting like we knew each other. This is always the way I feel when attending an AHRA event so I knew I was in the right place.

International Day of Radiology

By Jason Scott, MBA, CRA, FAHRA, CPXP, RT(R)(MR)
I was honored to present at Bayer Healthcare’s International Day of Radiology on Thursday, November 7, 2019 about recent trends in patient-focused imaging. The event highlighted two topics: (1) The role that imaging plays in a patient’s diagnosis and treatment journey and (2) the role that scanxiety plays in this journey.

The Journey

By Curtis L. McCloggan Sr. MHA, RT (R)
For today’s imaging leaders, the AHRA is a vital component to success; exposing members to “hot” topics such as artificial intelligence (AI), appropriate use criteria (AUC), and updates to CMS rules and other accrediting bodies.
