Dr Mike Bruno, a member of SIDM and of our listserv has advised that he has written a new book on diagnostic error in radiology which is scheduled for upcoming release: Error and Uncertainty in Diagnostic Radiology, with a foreword by our own Dr. Mark Graber, founder and past president of SIDM. A portion of the sale of each copy will benefit SIDM.

The publisher describes it:

"The book provides insight into the various types of radiologist error, along with a conceptual framework for understanding error and uncertainty in radiological diagnosis.  It was written specifically with the membership of SIDM in mind, and links the inherent uncertainty and risk of error in radiology to the overall problem of diagnostic error in medicine.  In this book, Dr. Bruno seeks to clarify and at least partially disentangle the many complex variables that contribute to the overall problem of radiological error, its impact on patients and their care, as well as to explore a broad range of strategies designed to reduce the risk of error in radiology.  The book is expected to be available for delivery by the end of next week."
