Earlier this summer, Tim Jones retired as director of radiology and cardiovascular services at Iredell Health System in Statesville, N.C. He had been with the system for 41 years. Jones reflected on that time in a Q &A interview with the Statesville Record & Landmark. During the interview, Jones looked back on how medical imaging has changed over the years since he first arrived at Iredell Memorial Hospital in 1976.
Woman’s Hospital in Baton Rouge, La., celebrated Independence Day by announcing it has added a second “mammography coach” to its fleet of care-delivering vehicles. This new bus offers digital breast tomosynthesis (DBT), or 3D mammography, to women throughout the area. BRProud.com, home of WVLA and Fox44, spotlighted the news on Independence Day. Cynthia Rabalais, director of imaging services for Woman’s Hospital, discussed the importance of both DBT and this brand new vehicle.
Two patients from Royal Adelaide Hospital (RAH) in Australia died in April after suffering strokes, and documents now reveal that schedule issues caused significant delays in their care. In each instance, the hospital’s two interventional neuroradiologists had the day off when the patients came in for care, meaning no specialists with proper training were on site. Another specialist was brought in from his own private practice—but not without a long delay in care.
Muck Rack makes it simple to find people, tweets, or articles that mention any name, keyword, company, hashtag etc. We've compiled this guide to help you make the most of your search.
Selecting a term
Start searching tweets, articles from media outlets, articles mentioned in tweets, journalists'
names, titles and bios with some suggested searches:
Companies or Topics (e.g. iPhone, Microsoft)
Phrases (e.g. "cloud computing") — use quotes to keep the terms together
Twitter handles (e.g. @username) — returns those who have mentioned or replied to
Names (e.g. "David Pogue")
Hashtags (e.g. #sxsw, #london2012)
Bio details (e.g. vegan, Olympics, father)
Muck Rack's Advanced Search allows for many boolean operators.
Find results that mention multiple specified terms, use AND or
+. For example, ensure each result contains both Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg by
searching Obama AND Romney or Obama + Romney.
Use the operators OR or , to broaden your search when you'd like either of
multiple terms to appear in results. (This is the default behavior of our search when no operators
are used.) For example, search for democrat OR republican to find results that refer to
Democrats and/or Republicans.
Use NOT or - to subtract results from your search. For
example, searching Disney will yield results about the Walt Disney Company as well as Walt Disney
World Resort. To exclude mentions of Disney World, search for Disney -World or Disney
When using one of these operators with a phrase, enclose it in quotation marks. For example, you can
find results about smartphones excluding Apple's iPhone 4S by searching smartphone -"iPhone
Exact case matching or punctuation
If you're searching for a brand name or keyword that relies on specific punctuation marks or capitalization, you can
find results that match your exact query by adding matchcase: before the keyword you're searching for, like matchcase:E*TRADE .
Use parentheses to separate multiple
boolean phrases. For example, to find journalists talking about having fun in Disney World or
Disneyland, search for ("disney world" OR disneyland) AND fun.
An asterisk can be used to search for any variation of a root word truncated by the asterisk. For example, searching for admin* will return results for administrator, administration, administer, administered, etc.
A near operator is an AND operator where you can control the distance between the words. You can vary the distance the near operation uses by adding a forward slash and number (between 0-99) such as strawberries NEAR/10 "whipped cream", which means the strawberries must exist within 10 words of "whipped cream".
