Colonoscopy turf wars

What if Medicare decides to cover “virtual”, or CT, colonoscopies? Well, it’s going to be ugly.

Colonoscopies are the primary reason why GI physician salaries are so high. They’re going to do all they can to justify continuing to perform endoscopic colonoscopies.

It’s a similar situation with CT-angiograms and the cardiologists.

If physician specialties were stocks, I’d go long in radiology.
