Radiology Health Services Research: From Imperative to Legislative Mandate

OBJECTIVES: In the era of health care reform, our value-added to patient care, its corresponding level of reimbursement, and the stature of radiology as a specialty will likely be grounded in the scientific evaluation methods of health services research.

CONCLUSIONS: We need to create more opportunities for training, provide resources and incentives for the brightest candidates to enter this field, and cultivate enriching environments for health services research in all academic radiology departments.
