Reading Room Design Article Features the Work of Architecture for Radiology


Architecture for Radiology (the only architecture firm in the world focused exclusively on radiology design and construction) is pleased to announce that its radiology design work has been featured in a new article on the subject of reading room design.

The article is entitled “Illuminating Reading Room Design for Better Reading Strategies”. It was written by Justine Cadet, and published in the December 2008 issue of Health Imaging & IT Magazine.

The article addresses a number of key design parameters for reading room design, and would be a good introduction to the subject for radiologists, radiology administrators and/or radiology consultants involved in radiology room design, including the planning and design of reading rooms.

Amongst the topics covered in the article are: workflow within the reading environment, lighting; acoustics; HVAC; privacy vs. collaboration, ergonomics; standardization vs. customization, and design materials and colors.

Architecture for Radiology’s well-known radiology room design principal - William N. Bernstein, AIA – is quoted extensively in the article.
