Surprisingly, this issue has come up during residency interviews. Some radiologists have mentioned salaries going into the 7 figures! However, the general data I see shows a range of $200,000 to $400,000 for radiologist salaries. Of course, this salary is affected by many variables, including location, years of training, geographic location, and especially by whether the diagnostic radiologist is an academic radiologist or private practice radiologist, with the latter making upwards of twice as much! As medical students make specialty choices while balancing college debt and medical school debt, it pays to keep these figures in mind!
