Share Article

RadSciences Group is releasing the results of the most recent Radiology Compensation Review that focuses on real-time wage changes and staffing trends that have affected radiology groups and hospitals over the past year, including their recruitment and retention efforts. The Compensation Review is a free resource that provides a summary of current data and market trends in all modalities of radiology.

2008 Radiology Compensation Review -- The latest figures show a continued market demand for Sonographers, Vascular Sonographers, Cardiac Sonographers and Interventional Technologists. The number of General, Vascular and Cardiac Sonographer searches conducted by RadSciences Group increased from 47.9 percent of overall searches in 2006 to 58.5 percent in 2007.

The U.S. Department of Labor projects the need for an additional 23,000 Ultrasound Technologists by 2014. The aging "baby boomer" population and the advancement in imaging technology will likely drive the demand for imaging procedures to nearly half a billion outpatients and 100 million inpatient scans by 2008 according to recent research released by independent healthcare research firms. Considering the nation's aging population -- and looming healthcare staffing crisis, as reported by USA Today -- healthcare administrators must take heed to improve retention and increase recruiting efforts. There is an increasing need for hospitals to fill urgent radiology department needs and retain existing providers.

RadSciences Group works with healthcare leaders to improve retention and talent selection by specializing in providing organizational development programs and recruitment services to hospitals throughout the country. By partnering with clients, RadSciences Group is able to provide experienced Allied Health Professionals with the best information available and help healthcare organizations everywhere to secure the talent necessary to achieve proper staffing ratios.

Mission Statement: At RadSciences Group, our mission is to be a recognized leader in talent selection, leadership development and recruitment within hospitals and medical imaging organizations. More than just a professional search firm, RadSciences Group desires to be a resource and partner to healthcare leaders who believe that talent selection is more than just education and credentials, but also the science of understanding an individual's beliefs, motivators and values.
