Workload of radiologists in United States in 2006-2007 and trends since 1991-1992.

Radiologists' workload continued to increase in recent years, and regression analysis showed that practices that used external off-hours teleradiology services performed 27% more procedures than otherwise similar practices that did not use these services.

The Royal Australian and New Zealand College of Radiologists (RANZCR) relative value unit workload model, its limitations and the evolution to a safety, quality and performance framework

Clear recommendations for the development of an updated national reporting workload RVU system are available, and an opportunity now exists for developing a much broader national model that enables value mapping, measurement and benchmarking.
