This is a survey with responses from 50 members of the Society of Chairmen of Academic Radiology Departments about the cost of doing business in the academic radiology department.  The article includes the survey questionnaire and some of the results.  Here are a couple of interesting findings:

RADIOLOGY EXAMS per YEAR in academic radiology departments

  • 200,000 to 400,000 (47 percent)
  • 400,000 to 500,000 (23 percent)
  • 500,0000-plus (25 percent)


  • Employed by hospital/health system (41 percent)
  • Employed by medical school (39 percent)
  • Independently owned radiology departments (20 percent)
