Who Collects Professional Fees for Neuroradiology Interpretation, Radiologists or Nonradiologists?
Journal of the American College of Radiology, 07/03/2012
Babiarz LS et al. – There was marked growth (140%) in neuroradiologic studies between 1996 and 2010 in the Medicare patient population. Radiologists' share of the total neuroradiologic interpretations remained unchanged and constituted 93.5% in 2010. Radiology's market share has shown growth in the inpatient and hospital outpatient sectors but not the private office sector, where independent diagnostic testing facilities, multidisciplinary groups, and other specialists have seen increases.
