To determine the operational characteristics of radiology groups in the United States in 1992.
The American College of Radiology surveyed a stratified random sample of 695 radiology groups, including academic departments, units in multispecialty groups, and staff of government facilities.
After intensive follow-up, a 69% response rate was achieved for in-scope groups.
The responses were weighted to show what findings would have been if all radiology groups in the country had responded.
Thirteen percent of groups practiced in a university or teaching hospital ; 59%, in a nonprofit hospital ; and 18%, in a proprietary hospital ; 42% routinely read images obtained by other practices ; and 15% were involved with mobile vans.
