Resumen

HEVIA M., Joaquín; BOSCH O., Enrique; MOENNE B., Karla  y  GARCIA B., Cristián. Radiologists’ duties: Confidentiality and professional secrecy, respect for patients’ dignity and intimacy. Rev. chil. radiol. [online]. 2018, vol.24, n.1, pp.2-4. ISSN 0717-9308.  http://dx.doi.org/10.4067/S0717-93082018000100002.

An ethical and professional medical behavior, which promotes and respects the ethical principles of medicine, is a goal that should always be pursued in medical practice. In radiology, as in other medical specialties, this includes respect for patients’ dignity, intimacy and confidentiality. The possibility of accessing patients’ private information compels radiologists to make a correct usage of this information, in order to respect professional secrecy and privacy codes that rule medical practice. Radiologists must teach and raise awareness among their students and co-workers in health care institutions of the importance of ethical behavior in their daily practice.
