How to get them……

Overnight Radiology Reads
    • Daytime: Inpatient CT scans are fit in among scheduled outpatient scans.
    • Nighttime: Inpatient Ct scans are worked in among ER scans.
    • IF A STUDY NEEDS TO GET DONE: Call down to speak with tech first. If there is a question, speak with radiology resident (in area-specific reading room during the day or ER reading room at night)
    • There are 2 residents (A - junior level; B - senior level) and 1 attending in house at night. The A (junior) is the first to answer the phone.
    • Scans done after 5PM will not be read by a radiologist until the next morning
    • Worst time to call: Between 5PM and 12AM, often because of busy ER
    • Best time to call: Between midnight and 5AM
    • Acute, specific questions can typically be answered quickly. Multiple studies will often require a call back.

Overnight Radiology Reads
    • Order comments on Wiz
    • Sign out: Specific reason why the study was ordered needs to be signed out to cross-cover.
    • Sick patient: It's okay if the team doesn't know what is going on if they are sick!
    • If you are cross cover, you are responsible to call radiology to get read
    • Radiology has a protocol to call physician about any "critical" items
    • HOWEVER, they don't know who is on, so this may go to the ER resident or a cross-covering intern overnight
    • CT tech: 26528
    • Body CT reading room: 26011
    • Neuro MRI reading room: 30900
