“Like anything in the medical community, there can be positive and negative,” Agnieszka Solberg (Bismarck, USA) tells NeuroNews discussing the impact of social media in the fields of interventional and neurointerventional radiology.

As a founder of the RadChicks movement—an online community for women working in the field of radiology—Solberg believes that social media networks such as Twitter, LinkedIn and Facebook provide vital networking opportunities for women and underrepresented minorities, but warns that physicians must use these platforms with caution, paying particular attention to patient confidentiality, among other potential pitfalls.

Physicians also have an important role in building trust with the public, and should be at the forefront of effort to combat medical misinformation, Solberg argues.
