    What are different options for working environment in rads? I know you can do tele, or pp, etc.

    In the community hospital, I like how rads can consult each other with harder reads, and talk personally with referring doctors. With tele in the mix, is rads moving towards working alone and remotely rather than in a group at a hospital/outpt setting?

    I like the idea of working at home, but I also like interacting with other radiologists and clinicians.

      someone here once mentioned their were a solo practitioner. how does that work in radiology?

      - you get yourself an exclusive contract with a small hospital
      - you read their x-rays, CT scans, MRIs etc.
      - you contract with a telerad company to cover nights, some weekends and stuff you don't feel comfortable reading
      - you bill medicare or the patients insurance or the patient for your services (either by hiring your own staff and using an office management software or by contracting it to a billing agency for a set percentage of your collections)
