A portrait of pediatric radiologists in the United States.
Merewitz L, Sunshine JH
"Approximately 3% of radiologists are pediatric radiologists. Unlike other radiologists, a greater percentage of pediatric radiologists desire a reduction in workload (with a corresponding reduction in income) than desire an increase in workload. Pediatric radiologists are disproportionately women, hospital-based, in academic practices, and in the main cities of large metropolitan areas.
A shortage of pediatric radiologists exists and is likely to intensify. Access to pediatric radiologists is probably a problem except for children in large metropolitan areas who connect readily to academic hospitals. Means to overcome these problems need to be actively sought."
