Host: Jason Birnholz, MD
Guest: Dushyant Sahani, MD
More often, the diagnosis of causes of upper abdominal pain and specialty triage of patients as necessary has become the province of the radiologist. How do radiologists best approach diagnosis and management for these patients, and what factors underlie positive interactions between referring physician and radiologist for this common clinical problem? Host Dr. Jason Birnholz is joined by Dr. Dushyant Sahani, clinical instructor of radiology at Harvard Medical School and director of CT imaging services at Massachusetts General Hospital, to examine the radiology of upper abdominal pain and the expanding role of the radiologist.
