In House Radiologist versus Outsourcing

This eternal debate continues with Sep 2011 issue of Journal of the American College of Radiology, where authors talk of  value-added services by having radiologists in house: (1) patient safety, (2) quality of the images, (3) quality of the interpretations, (4) service to patients and referring physicians, (5) cost containment, and (6) helping build the hospital's business. 

 However, according to me, a mixed approach where in we have teleradiology complementing the inhouse team, by means of 1) vacation coverage,  2) added expertise for example we help one of our centres in cardiac CT and other in MSK MRI, 3) Peer Review , 4 ) Second opinions.
