Health Care Research
Health care policy and economic research with respect to radiology is an area of active research by several members of our faculty. Recent publications by Drs. Howard Forman and Jeffrey Weinreb address the means of measuring the current market for Radiologists, the incentives that medical students respond to in choosing a specialty, and ensuring quality in imaging services.
