To assess subspecialty practice characteristics of the U.S. radiologist workforce. Despite an increased focus on radiology subspecialization, most U.S. radiologists are majority general radiologists on the basis of their work RVUs. Subspecialization is by far more prevalent in larger and academic practices. Full Article
