Interdisciplinary Cooperation

The surgeon and the radiologist can get the most out of imaging techniques by working together. Each needs to learn from the other. Radiologists need to understand the pathology of rhinosinusitis, otherwise they are in danger of writing misleading statements like "mucosal thickening showing rhinosinusitis" when a better interpretation would be "mucosal thickening consistent with rhinosinusitis." On the other hand, the surgeon needs to know the CT parameters for window settings and how these affect the images. It is important that the surgeon knows how to interpret CT films and does not rely on a written report, because words cannot adequately describe patterns of changes or the complexity of anatomy.

Hold regular meetings together, which will provide the basis for a mutually productive learning experience that in the end will benefit both you and your patients.
