Radiologists are Rodney Dangerfields of medicine-Article Reports

Special Article in  LAS VEGAS REVIEW-JOURNAL writes this interesting piece about role of radiologists in medical practice. 
Article says "Radiologists are a bit like the Rodney Dangerfields of medicine — they just can’t get any respect from the public. Television and films have a seeming love affair with surgeons. Even coroners and pathologists get more attention from Hollywood."
However, Dr Steinberg disagrees to this practice of ignoring the contribution of radiologists towards healthcare by public in general.  For those of you who don't know, Rodney Dangerfield was an American comedian and actor, known for the catchphrase "I don't get no respect!" and his monologues on that theme.
“We radiologists are the doctors’ doctor,” said Dr. David Steinberg, founder of Steinberg Diagnostic in Las Vegas. “We are a diagnostic tool and a large part of medicine.”

"We are more like linemen than quarterbacks." This is a great piece. There is a belief that rads choose the specialty in order to work 9 to 5. But radiology is central to the practice of medicine and if surgeons are up all night operating we are up as well providing a valuable service to our colleagues and patients.
