Excellence in communication is the single most important determinant of the perception of quality in any department of radiology, probably exceeding other factors related to technical skills, quality of images, or accuracy of interpretation. Chapter 8 discusses the need for proper communication at various levels and in different forms, and that professional and courteous verbal interaction with referring physicians, patients' families, radiology staff, and faculty can assure the delivery of high- level, clinically competent patient care.
