Members of the UCSF Department of Radiology & Biomedical Imaging came together to raise over $5,000 to support Bay Area HIV and AIDS services at the 2015 AIDS Walk San Francisco.

When it comes to receiving their imaging results, who do patients want to hear from and what information are they interested in receiving? Determining patient preference was the goal of a recent survey I co-authored.
