At all radiology practices that were surveyed by AMGA, diagnostic radiologists reported an annual median salary of $509,447. This represented an increase over the annual median salary reported last year, which itself had fallen compared with 2018.

The findings are a contrast from 2019, when radiologists largely missed out on salary increases experienced by other medical specialties.
On a regional basis, radiologists in the northern region had the highest median salary, at $554,400, while the lowest median was in the survey's eastern region, at $479,185. In between the two were the western region, at a median salary of $521,073, and the southern region, at $521,986.
In comparing salaries by practice size, larger practices (with more than 300 full-time employees) reported lower salaries in the AMGA survey, while radiologists at smaller practices enjoyed higher pay. Radiologists at midsized practices tended to be the most productive, as measured by work relative value units (RVUs).
