Thank you for participating in the 2012 National Radiologists' Survey!  The purpose is to compile aggregate data to present at a national radiology meeting, with the goal of improving the profession of diagnostic imaging while also designing materials that can help you, as an individual, find the fastest path to a better radiology practice.
 
The questions below are designed to give you tailored opportunities to find the radiology success you are looking for and to help you translate that into ways to positively impact your world.  Your answers are completely confidential and the information will only be used to help you.  You may enter data anonymously or leave your contact information.
 
To thank you for your time and input, if you choose to enter your contact information at the end of the survey, you will receive your choice of an Amazon or iTunes gift card and you will also have a chance to win a new IPad.

We'll select the iPad winner randomly from the people who answer all the questions.

Thank you so much!

In friendship,

Lori
