To the Editor: This letter of lament was prompted by a recently overheard complaint by a first-year intern to her colleagues that radiologists were not “obeying” her! Her comment led us to review her last five imaging requests (“orders”). After discussion with other radiologists, three of these requests were considered inappropriate.
