Thanks Helen, Thanks David,

CME at hospitals, at least in Northern Arizona, has almost disappeared. I presume because it costs too much. Also, visits to discuss with the radiologist, I hear, in many centers are dead. Both places where physicians learnt so much in the past.

David, if communication is so important why is this happening. Is this just because of cost?

On my hobby horse again, is this something SIDM could change to help the diagnostic process - could that be a five year goal?
