OBJECTIVE. During the 20th century, radiologists enjoyed relationships with clinicians and patients through daily face-to-face communication. As specialist consultants, radiologists were naturally integral members of the care team. CONCLUSION. The widespread availability of information technology, notably PACS, has disrupted the fundamental radiologist-clinician axis. New generations of radiologists must respond to this disturbing trend by (re)learning how to "add value" by rekindling personal professional relationships, developing global leadership skills, and becoming involved in health care system design and implementation.
