To the typical interpretation time, add the time to respond to frequent phone calls, technologist questions, tailoring of protocols, teaching (rare), reviewing comparison studies, entering outside studies to PACS and interpreting them, finding and calling other physicians about vital or unexpected findings, and engaging in inevitable debates with referring staff who are quite certain they know what they want, if not what they need, and how to get it. Perhaps one day a plaintiff in a malpractice case can add the risk management team as a defendant for not monitoring physician workload and its impact on patient care.
