A record-high attendance of 1,000 radiology directors and managers convened to the 2015 Annual Meeting of the Association for Medical Imaging Management (AHRA 2015) held this year in Las Vegas. Radiology is going through interesting times indeed. Under the coordinated care paradigm that is gradually emerging in the U.S., and with all the changes this is forcing on volume-based economic models, medical imaging enterprises are under increasing pressure to redefine their goals and reassess their value.
