Radiology has enjoyed an enviable position among medical specialties during the past two decades.
Unprecedented developments in new technology expanded its horizons, and the volume of radiologic procedures increased far more than overall growth in health care services.
The attendant increase in relative and absolute health care spending on radiologic services has cast radiology as a prime target for restrictions, cutbacks, and limitations in an era of managed care and national concern for reining in the growth of health care spending.
A strategic response by radiologists requires an understanding of the implications of structural change in health care delivery systems and payment systems.
