May 3, 2018 -- Radiologists landed in the No. 10 position on a list produced by Business Insider of the highest-paid healthcare professions. The list is based on data from the career website LinkedIn.

Radiologists had a base median salary of $350,000 and a total median salary of $368,000, according to the data. Radiologists were one notch ahead of emergency physicians and one spot below anesthesiologists.

The rankings were compiled by Business Insider through data that LinkedIn collected through its salary tool. The article noted that the information was self-reported.
