Abstract

The American Board of Medical Specialties (ABMS) has approved a "new" residency: dual Certification in Interventional Radiology (IR) / Diagnostic Radiology (DR). This IR/DR program intends to better prepare future IR doctors. Residency programs can apply for the IR/DR program beginning in 2015, with full nationwide implementation of the IR/DR residency likely to ramp up by 2022. The IR/DR dual certificate can be attained via an "Integrated" or "Independent" IR/DR residency pathway. The IR/DR training pathway may lead the way to the future training of IR/DR physicians worldwide. Certainly, the ABMS approval of a "new" residency is rare and worth attention; however, as with all things new, questions and concerns will be raised. • The ABMS approved a "new" residency, the IR/DR dual Certification. • This IR/DR program intends to better prepare future IR doctors. • Full nationwide implementation of the IR/DR Residency is likely by 2022. • The IR/DR certificate can be attained via the Integrated or the Independent residency pathway. • These programs may lead the way to the future training of IR/DR physicians worldwide.

Attention Score in Context

Attention Score in Context

This research output has an Altmetric Attention Score of 3. This is our high-level measure of the quality and quantity of online attention that it has received. This Attention Score, as well as the ranking and number of research outputs shown below, was calculated when the research output was last mentioned on 20 February 2021.
All research outputs
#8,064,660
of 24,217,893 outputs
Outputs from Insights into Imaging
#482
of 1,072 outputs
Outputs of similar age
#127,520
of 402,386 outputs
Outputs of similar age from Insights into Imaging
#10
of 17 outputs
Altmetric has tracked 24,217,893 research outputs across all sources so far. This one is in the 44th percentile – i.e., 44% of other outputs scored the same or lower than it.
So far Altmetric has tracked 1,072 research outputs from this source. They typically receive a little more attention than average, with a mean Attention Score of 7.2. This one has gotten more attention than average, scoring higher than 52% of its peers.
Older research outputs will score higher simply because they've had more time to accumulate mentions. To account for age we can compare this Altmetric Attention Score to the 402,386 tracked outputs that were published within six weeks on either side of this one in any source. This one has gotten more attention than average, scoring higher than 54% of its contemporaries.
We're also able to compare this research output to 17 others from the same source and published within six weeks on either side of this one. This one is in the 41st percentile – i.e., 41% of its contemporaries scored the same or lower than it.
