Most of our respondents cited hospitals and academic medical centers as their work environment, with just a handful representing teleradiology companies.
Respondents typically worked for smaller to mid-size practices capping out at 30 radiologists, but quite a few represented some big numbers, with over 50 radiologists in their practice.
Radiologists are still clocking more hours than the average work week, with more than 70% working 41-75 hours a week. We saw the same trend in 2014, but 10% more radiologists worked these hours in 2014 than did in 2013.
Judging from these numbers, our radiologist respondents are specializing in multiple modalities. CT, MRI, and Ultrasound are the top modalities, but 17% of respondents claimed no specialization.
Our radiology respondents are making a wide range of salaries, with a mean salary of $427,369. This took a huge leap from our 2014 Compensation Survey, which had a mean salary of $355,641.
Most radiology respondents aren't getting any of their salary from bonuses or other incentives, except for a few that claim up to 25% of their salary is from these "extras."
The majority of radiologist respondents saw no change in their 2014 salary versus their 2013 salary, but almost a quarter of them lost more than 10% of their salary in that period.
On a scale from 1-5, with 1 indicating extremely unsatisfied, radiologist respondents feel lukewarm about their salary. The net unsatisfaction rate was about 28%, and net satisfaction rate was about 39%. The average rating was 3.14.
