Anyone know what lifestyle/pay was for RadOnc 10 years ago before it was so competitive?

no difference. it has nothing to do with competition in that the pay doesnt go down. HOwever if youre asking was the pay less and now that its more more people want it, no that's not the case. In fact in in the early 1990's it was relatively better before HMO/reimbursement scares came in.

Why is is more competitive now? Dunno, see FAQ.

I was just wondering if it was in the upper end of the pay scale in the 90s.

Is billing especially difficult with the technological advancements changing treatment options regularly? What do you see in the future of pay? Big hits expected like in other fields?
