The main objectives of the study were as follows : first, to study the nature and extent of radiologists'involvement in and their attitudes toward quality assessment (QA) and continuous quality improvement (CQI)/total quality management (TQM) in hospitals and in offices ; and second, to ascertain whether differences in size, type, and location among hospitals and nonhospital radiology offices affect the QA and CQI/TQM activities of radiologists.
We analyzed data from a national survey conducted by the American College of Radiology (ACR) in 1993.
MATERIALS AND METHODS
Questionnaires about QA and CQI/TQM activities and attitudes were mailed to 216 hospital-affiliated diagnostic radiology group practices using a sample selected from the ACR master list of radiology practices in the United States.
The response rate was 90%.
