  • Is radiology a vital speciality?: Reflections on medium term prospects

    • 19/09/2017

    Comparing radiology to living at or near the ocean allows the threats to radiology to be explored via a nautical theme.   Our specialty is heading for a period of uncertainty, disquiet, challenge and perhaps peril, one that will likely manifest itself in the medium term, five to fifteen years hence at the latest. The signs that should engender alarm are already evident, more subdued than...

  • Radiology and Pathology and Finland and Estonia

    • 11/05/2015

    Sometimes insights, hitherto unperceived can be gleaned by finding points of connection between seemingly disparate pairs of organisations. The power of an apt metaphor can serve to transcend differences in focus and mission by bringing to the fore mutualities of concern and opportunity.

  • Job Prospects for Radiologists in the United States

    • 15/03/2013

    The golden age of radiology in the United States has drawn to a close. Perhaps after a period of adjustment, a new resplendent silver age might occur but for the present and medium term the prospects are guarded. Why the gloomy assessment?
