Poll of the Week: Does a Fragmented Radiology Department Mean Catastrophe for a Hospital?


Hospital-based radiologists are threatened by other specialists and teleradiology companies encroaching on their turf, according to authors of a recent article in the Journal of the American College of Radiology.

Radiologists, therefore, should make their added value clear to hospitals, whose administrations might not recognize the benefits of on-site groups, the authors said.

A hospital radiology department that becomes fragmented without a unified group “would quickly degenerate into chaos,” the authors said, adding “the whole hospital could slow down drastically.” Only an on-site team can prevent this kind of “catastrophe.”
