  • Merely suggesting that radiologists answer the call to bolster and secure the future of their own specialty has not resulted in increased activism. Therefore, the ACR Commission on Human Resources has developed a definition for the concept of citizenship in radiology and explicit descriptions of the activities associated with it. Furthermore, the authors introduce a methodology for the measurement and valuation of individual radiologists' contributions to group practices and to the specialty as a whole. These measures can in turn be used to promote, acknowledge, recognize, and incentivize citizenship activity among radiologists at the local, regional, and national levels.
