    most specialized doctors make a lot... I think dermatologists make more than radiologists. Anesthesiologists make a lot, any kind of surgeon, etc.

    These are average salaries. Radiology is way, way up there. Is it that hard? I mean, they don't even had to cut people open.

    Those are supposedly average figures. He may make less, but he could, in fact, make much more!

    Off a site off of Google. Just type in doctor's salaries. It's there somewhere.

    I've read in other places where radiologists make bank, that's why I googled it. Why is their specialty so special to make that much more than other docs?

    those numbers are old. there are radiologists in my area who, I **** you not, pull in 900K+ and get 12 weeks vacation a year.

    but medicine is cyclical. 10 years ago radiology wasn't this lucrative

    Becoming a Radiologist is extremely hard. You must be like the top student in your class out of hundreds and have like a perfect score on your USMLE.

    Well it's a highly specialized medical field that's hard to get into. So that makes sense. One of my best friends wants to become a radiologist but he doesn't know one thing about the job besides that they make $350k a year lol.

    wat

    and the reason radiologists make so much is because there isn't that many of them so they're in high demand.

    I'm an x-ray tech student and Radiologist make more than those figures. They have to read tons of films whether they be ct scans, mri's, xray films, nuclear medicine. Plus they also do procedures and inserting catheters for fluoroscopy. When I'm in their reading room, just listening to them record their diagnoses on a tape recorder is amazing, it doesn't even sound like english

    because most people who go to med school don't want to do that job because its very repetative......sitting in a room reading chart after chart would get annoying very fast...


    Also visual speed is not an ability that everyone has, the requirement for the specility is very harsh and many can't make the cut even if their grades are flawless.

    Personally, I'd rather go into disease/pathology, or cardio.

    Not really that strong of a wtf. If you consider people are payed millions upon millions of dollars a year to play a sport like baseball, hockey, football etc (which most people pay money to play) and then there's doctors that will be on call 24/7 for a week and go several days without sleeping while saving peoples lives.. I think maybe we should pay them more.

    don't post logic....most people on the MISC assume doctors are dumb, overrated, and their material can be learned within an hour by using google.....

    i am also an x ray dude and yea im pretty sure radiologists get payed more its also like 15 yrs to become one here in aus

    i think in general the procedures are easy its just image reading that is so balls. I could imagine it being not to hard once you get it done but it does get very repetitive and working up to 11 hour shifts a day and being on call alot can also suck

    theres a huge shortage here in aus does anyone know why? i thought that radiology would be one of the easier specialties to get into

    You're in the UK with national health insurance. They make a lot less than US doctors.

    a radiologist here

    I feel I'm at some risk here posting, but here goes (donning armored suit)

    That number is an average, and close to other averages I read. For our group, it is low.

    That said, some of the comments above are on target, some not.

    The training is generally (after college) four years of med school, 1 year of internship, 4 years of residency, and 1-2 years of fellowship (almost a requirement now). The residencies are very hard to get into, and if you are not in the top 5% of your med school class, it is even more difficult.

    To some, what we do may seem easy, but the breadth of knowledge we need to have is pretty intimidating, and it is a real stretch trying to keep up.

    As in any job, there are the simple, boring things, and then there are the complex, interesting things. I read anywhere from 40 cases to 120 cases per day. Our specialty now has various subspecialties. There are those who do neurointervention, shooting glue and coils up into the brain to shut off bleeds, for example. Recently, they have the capability of getting a special catheter up into the brain to pull out a clot that is causing a stroke. VERY high risk work, VERY time consuming, and anxiety provoking.

    The day can be very hectic, with up to four items at a time demanding your immediate attention. IT is a real challenge not to miss anything with so many distractions

    Muskuloskeletal MRI, which you guys may be familiar with, is read by people in radiology with 2 years of extra training in this. Most Orthopods can read MR somewhat, seeing the easy usual stuff with good accuracy, but they always rely on us for the final stuff. THat orthopod pointing to the football players injury on the MR in the monday morning press conference? He has always read the report or talked to the radiologist. That is the radiologists report you are hearing. Some hospitals have hired our group to read simply because the orthopods demand us.

    THen there is the breast work. Ninety five percent of all breast biopsies are done by radiologists now. The reading of the mammograms and ultrasounds which are the basis of all early breast cancer detection is always read by us, and it is difficult. BTW - there is a great shortage of rads who do this because of malpractice fears, it is the most litigious area we work in.

    We do work some of our people on 12 hour through the night shifts (They volunteer for this. Really.)

    I would also say that many people in business who I meet do better than I do, but they are not identified as a class (radiologists) publicly, nor are their average salaries posted online. Suffice to say that I make well less than many of my friends in business.

    Also, I make a good deal more than my friends in primary care. This is purely a result of funding decisions made by the government about 15 years ago. This was really stupid. We now have a great shortage of primary care physicians. They are paid way too little for the stress they have to endure. Also, if you are feeling like your doctor doesn't spend enough time with you, this is the reason. If they don't average 15 minutes a patient or better, they can go bankrupt.

    In summary, I do make a good living, but it does come with its downsides. I do it because I am a gearhead at heart (love messing with the MR machines, particularly when I get a killer good picture out), I get a chance to make a big difference in many peoples lives every day, and I get a chance to learn about all different areas of medicine.
