Exactly. High demand, low supply. Many understaffed departments can’t afford to spurn candidates, and will be flexible in accommodating other subspecialty interests to secure ‘general’/on call needs. Good for the individual but doesn’t help the overall radiology needs nationwide

But I think that’s the point Abb. In a system clearly understaffed - to the tune of c. 600 SpRs per year according to RCR, playing Devil’s advocate, don’t you have to be more rigid about how your workforce is spread?

By College’s figures it is the most populous specialty by consultant and from local experience is gets most applicants per post. More radiologists needed in total I agree, but the split of specialty radiologists currently affects some subspecialties far more than others.

A centralised method of awarding subspecialty(s) higher training in those underfilled (Paeds/Breast/Cardiac) or overfilled subspecialties MSK!!) should be implemented to safeguard each subspecialty and avoid training excessive numbers unnecessarily.

The reality is the College needs to look at what specialty radiologists it has (through workforce census) and what it needs (through assessing vacancies and bottlenecks to reporting and performing subspecialty work) with an eye on future modality and body system developments. 1/n

I was a surgical trainee who wanted to be a cardiothoracic radiologist, but I had to do 3.5 years of ‘other radiology’ including 2 months of IR. I think we should offer a separate cardiothoracic radiology training scheme from ST1. 🤔

Agree with this Dr. Tangerides. If your surgeon is going to operate on absolute values (55 mm), report absolute values. Can index it to height, BMI or which football club they support - this aorta is aneurysmal.

Are we over diagnosing Pulmonary Emboli? Controversy session - ‘Patients are not undergoing the clinical evaluation before they undergo the imaging test’. Very interesting session.

The key phrase here is ‘diagnosis of lung cancer’. Don’t get me started on the CXR to assess heart size. CXR has its used just not for these questions.
