The Brazilian College of Radiology and Imaging Diagnosis (CBR) launched, this Wednesday (13), the CBR podcast. The new addition to the College brings various subjects in addition to radiology and Imaging Diagnosis, such as: art, humanism and culture. Each episode features an expert and is led by Dr. Aline Guimarães, radiologist, medical manager at DASA Educa and member of the CBR cultural commission.
The project aims to address relevant topics and skills for the radiologist to evolve as an individual and professional, based on art, humanism and culture. The first guest of podcast was Dr. Linei Urban, Vice-President of the Paraná Radiology Society (SRP) and Cultural Director of CBR. This episode had the theme “Radiology, Humanization and the Future”.
During the podcast, the doctors spoke about innovation and technology in the radiology and Imaging Diagnosis sector, soft skills, and about the change and adaptation of the radiologist in relation to the patient. The guest of this first episode reinforced a lot about the humanized work that professionals must have.
Our podcast will be published every two weeks and is available on Spotify, SoundCloud and Apple Podcasts. The next guest will be Dante Velloni, professor at the University of Ribeirão Preto and the Postgraduate course in Art History at FAAP (Ribeirão Preto-SP). The second episode will have the theme “Art and Medicine”.
Check out some of Dr. Linei Urban's speeches during EP1:
Dr. Linei Urban talks about the role of technology today for radiologists and also makes a projection: “I have no doubt that Artificial Intelligence (AI) will soon be part of the routine of most radiologists” A The doctor also talks about the impacts that AI can bring to the daily life of our sector, according to her: “With the use of (AI), we would greatly improve the speed of evaluating our exams. This impact is very good for our patients and for us doctors.” However, Dr. Linei ponders and talks about the negative impact of using technology: “On the other hand, we will need fewer radiologists to do this work, in other words, the radiologist who only describes the exam will lose his job. It will be the one who can establish the relationship between the exam and the patient, intelligence will never replace that.”
About the soft skills a Dr. Linei says that in her view there are three fundamental skills: “The first is knowing how to communicate with patients, with other doctors. This is perhaps the most important skill of all. The second ability, empathy and compassion, is very important in the case of a doctor. Third, adaptability. We need this in our lives as a whole, but for us radiologists, AI will completely change the way we work, and we have to make this an opportunity for us to bring better radiology to everyone.”
