Much needed article
Should be highlighted in newspapers etc for mass knowledge
Could add more figures & facts to illustrate
Add to the woes , managing a centre is no mean task . Requires skill of a seasoned MBA.
No wonder my children have opted out of this rat race

Very commendable

I Fully endorse views in the editorial.I was also naive like you mentioned,not knowing nitty gritty of business of radiology,installed CT machine,years together heavily paid for comprehensive Service Contracts,paid for bank interests.
Most of the radiologists dont know how much we shall be paying for service contracts and spares,before purchasing equipment.New trend of Institutional Medical Practice at peripheral level,makes business of radiologists unviable.
As you mentioned subject like- Business practices in radiology,how to negotiate,Do & Dont Do before starting radiology practice shall be introduced,at least these topic should get place in most of CMEs,Conferences at all levels.
