"What the survey showed was that for radiation oncologists who changed jobs in the three years prior to the survey, the top reasons were practice mergers/buyouts and desire for stability," said Fung. "The shift from private practice to academic centers and hospitals may possibly be related to changes in the health care landscape, where health care delivery is increasingly consolidated and smaller radiation therapy practices are increasingly acquired by large systems."

In addition, a greater adoption of new technology was observed, with 95 percent of practices offering shortened, or hypofractionated, radiation therapy primarily for breast tumors (94 percent), bone metastases (92 percent) and brain metastases (74 percent), as well as techniques such as stereotactic radiation and real-time image guidance.
