Professionalism in radiology. Journal of thoracic imaging Leung, A. N. 2014; 29 (5): 284-288


Professionalism has been described as the "basis of medicine's contract with society." This article reviews the foundational principles of medical professionalism and, more specifically, defines the nature and scope of radiologists' responsibilities to patients. In the face of ongoing changes in the environment of medical practice, maintenance of professionalism is an adaptive challenge that will require successful practitioners to be open to and actively engaged in continuous learning and self-improvement.
