Abstract

The open-microphone sessions at the AMCLC provide a forum for the ACR's membership to be heard. The topics in 2013 included a review of the annual radiology workforce survey, the impact of teleradiology services, and the rationale for the new Imaging 3.0 initiative. Comments from members at the 2013 AMCLC unequivocally illustrated a single overarching theme: anxiety - anxiety about the future of our practices and anxiety about our profession. In light of recent and anticipated changes in health care, radiologists, radiation oncologists, interventional radiologists, nuclear medicine physicians, and medical physicists - members of the ACR - must continue to establish a leadership role in the health care system and serve as a cornerstone for all patient-care delivery models. ACR commissions, networks, institutes, and initiatives will position us for smoother transitions in the persistently altering health care landscape and will ensure that we have the expertise and tools to serve as leaders in health care systems and advocates for our patients in current and future health care systems.
