Radiology in a Socialised Medicine Environment

  • H. Ringertz
Conference paper
Part of the Syllabus book series (SYLLABUS)


The medical speciality of diagnostic radiology is represented in most countries in the world independent of political system and political ideologies. There are however differences in the health care systems depending on political ideologies that effect the way radiology functions and interacts. An analysis of this situation in a socialised health care system will be made based on the experiences in Europe, but specifically in Sweden.
