Peer-review in radiology
Currently, the increasing requirement of quality control in modern radiology means that this vital aspect of the profession is becoming ever-more time-consuming and expensive. Peer review is a widely accepted approach that enables quality measurements to be carried out in routine practice, with the goal of improving overall performance through the recognition of initially unnoticed findings in diagnostic studies and the identification of appropriate corrective measures. In fact, peer review is an obligatory component of many radiological services.
