MSK Call Responsibilities

Parking at HMC

  • Get an “on-call” parking pass for the NJB parking lot at Harborview.
  • Make sure you get the IT guys to set up gateways on your home computer (‘barry’ and ‘statler’) so you can review studies from home.

Answering the pager

  • Mainly MR/CT protocol questions from the technologists
  • Occasionally will have to approve MRI at UW (schedule in the day if possible, otherwise the on-call tech has to come in from home at night)
  • Schedule or come in for procedures (eg, joint aspirations). Biopsies will only get done with MSK staff, at HMC only.
  • May get asked to overread studies from the oncall resident or from an ED staff

Weekend dictations

  • Contrast reaction coverage at Roosevelt (0900-1500)
  • HMC inpatient chest and abdomen radiographs
  • HMC bone unread list (?optional, but helps out the Monday Harborview fellow. (Plain films only, but in theory you could get called regarding inpatient cross-sectionals over the weekend. If you see them, you may want to look at them without necessarily doing a full dictation.)
