  • More than 25% of the present radiology workforce, or nearly 8300 radiologists, are actively practicing late-career radiologists. While these individuals could decide to retire from active practice, their continued presence in the workforce helps to maintain adequate and appropriate patient imaging services. To ensure their continued participation, issues important to all late-career radiologists need to be appreciated, discussed, and addressed. These issues include call-duty requirements, compensation, physical and cognitive health, and organized phase-out programs. The gamut of these issues is addressed in this review article.
