  • Radiologists today practice in diverse environments in addition to the traditional private practice model. Practice environments are evolving at a rapid rate, and the ACR Commission on Human Resources previously detailed the distribution of radiologists in practice in its workforce survey. Here, the commission describes the key practice options available and illustrates important differences in physician autonomy, efficiency, productivity, and subspecialty versus general practice among the practice environments. These attributes can in turn be useful to radiologists in deciding what type of work environment to seek.
