Or longer!! Thank you for this measurement of time vs patient #. I argue
this theory at least once a week with our medical director. I am printing
this off as I am typing this response.
I have another question to go along with this. How much paper work do you
have to do after each patient? Do you dictate a "prelim" report, cut and
paste pics, handwrite a note--or whatever. & how do you calculate that time
into your EHU graph? Do you call or fax prelims to referring physicians at
the time of the study? In other words how much time do you allow for the
"extra" essentials not associated with taking care of your patient
face-to-face hands on scanning?
