The number of female radiologists has been slowly climbing over the years, and yet women only account for about 26.5 percent of practicing radiologists in the U.S.1,2 The number of women in radiology leadership positions, such as a managing partner, chair, or executive committee member, is even lower at just 13 percent.3
Imaging Technology News (ITN) recently spoke with Lisa Adams, CEO of Radiology Imaging Associates (RA) in Daytona Beach, Florida and the newly elected president of the Florida Radiology Business Management Association (FRBMA), about her career path, the increase of women in radiology leadership roles, and how participation in radiology societies can benefit both aspiring and experienced women in the field.
Lisa also discusses industry partnerships and technological advancements – like RA’s collaboration with Fujifilm to help continuously advance their Synapse® Radiology Information System (RIS) – and the impact the partnership has had on RA’s workflows and care delivery.
