The need to change the way radiologists work is now more crucial than ever, and less than full-time (LTFT) working is increasingly seen as part of the solution to this. LTFT working can maximise the available workforce of radiologists who may not be able to work full time for a variety of reasons, while improving patient care and increasing productivity.
