Virtual FTE solutions at vRad can provide you an alternative to radiology locum tenens or a new hire.

vFTE: The most efficient option for day or night radiologist coverage – with superior clinical and practice benefits.

  • Personnel changes leaving holes in your clinical coverage?
  • Need additional radiologists to support growth or subspecialty demands – like daytime coverage, breast imaging or MSK?
  • Have more complex MRIs and PET/CTs than your current team desires to read?
  • Looking for improved service levels through 24/7 final interpretations?

An onsite radiologist costs ~$500,000 per year

  • Employed Radiologist Salary: $419,000 plus benefits, medical malpractice, practice expense, recruiting, vacation, partnership, etc.
  • Locums: $2,300 per day (staffing 250 days = $575,000), credentialing costs/time/effort, unknown quality and productivity, availability challenges, subspecialty trained?
  • The ACR says “…radiologist must produce $515,000 in a year [to cover] salary, group benefits and expenses. Stated another way – $2,341 a day.”

Based on daily locums rates, vRad could deliver Final reports for:

  • 35 MR studies per day, or
  • 52 CT studies per day, or
  • 62 US studies per day, or
