How timely and accurate are radiology residents when it comes to preliminary interpretations of x-rays, ultrasounds, and major modalities? A study published in the Journal of the American College of Radiology explored the matter.

The objective of this paper is to assess the volume, accuracy, and timeliness of radiology resident preliminary reports as part of an independent call system. This study seeks to understand the relationship between resident year in training, study modality, and discrepancy rate.
