Your time is valuable to us. "[Today's] procedures are performed in such an expedited way," says Dr. Fereidoun Abtin, Director of Thoracic Fellowship in the Department of Radiology.
In a study reviewing visit durations of lung biopsies at SMOIC (FY 14/15, 2014 vs. 2015), Dr. Abtin saw decreased average stay by 21 minutes and reduced procedure times by 17% (71 mins vs. 59mins). The effort in increasing efficiency has led to the shorter procedures, leading to shorter stays, and an improved patient experience.
