Radiologists are extremely dependent on information technology staff, but I.T. isn't part of the radiology department--which means radiologists don't have control over I.T., says Paul Nagy, director of quality in the department of radiology and an associate professor at Johns Hopkins University in Baltimore.

At RNSA 2011, being held Nov. 27 to Dec. 2 in Chicago, Nagy will moderate a three-part educational session on helping I.T. better understand radiologists' needs, building a good relationship and finding ways to influence I.T. behavior. "You have to communicate with I.T. people and influence them even when they aren't under your control."
