Tension with hospitals doesn't slow radiology comp climb
Despite turfs wars, manpower shortages, and recent reimbursement, radiology has been and continues to be one of the top-paying medical specialties. The AMGA 2007 Medical Group Compensation and Financial Survey lists median compensation at $440,004 for interventional radiologists and $414,875 for noninterventional radiologists. Although most industry compensation surveys are based on the previous year's data and have not yet measured the effect of the 2007 Deficit Reduction Act (DRA), which cuts $2.8 million from Medicare reimbursement for imaging over five years, physicians shouldn't expect a significant drop in compensation in the near future.
