ALPHARETTA, GA September 1, 2010 - LocumTenens.com has published a first of its kind ebook showcasing the first decade of the twenty-first century in the field of radiology. In addition to a synopsis of the last 10 years, LocumTenens.com predicts what the future of radiology might look like, including a supply and demand forecast (accounting for 32 million newly insured people) that shows a possible shortfall of eight to 16%.

The ebook provides in-depth analysis of the important milestones and trends experienced by radiology over the last 10 years. It includes charts and figures quantifying these changes as well as expert analysis of their significance. Some of the topics covered include: workforce growth, radiology salaries, productivity rates, teleradiology and practice management companies, legislative changes, and more. It concludes by looking ahead to the next decade and the possible trends that the future holds for radiology.

"I believe radiology practices and hospital radiology departments will find this retrospective of the decade insightful and interesting," Shane Jackson, president of LocumTenens.com, said.
