Less female radiologists are
publishing research

New study highlights gender disparity in radiology

by Lauren Dubinsky , Senior Reporter
A team of researchers at the University of Maryland School of Medicine discovered that less research is being published by female radiologists.

Dr. Erin O’Connor, assistant professor at the university and lead author of the study, attributes this to a decrease in female radiology faculty and trainees.

“There are not as many female mentors in radiology,” she told HCB News. “A lot of times medical students pick a specialty when they find someone that they identify with. I think gender certainly plays a role in that.”

For the study, which was recently published in Academic Radiology, O’Connor and her team focused on studies published in Radiology and the American Journal of Radiology between 1970 and 2016. They specifically looked at the gender of the first, corresponding, and last authors.

From 1970 to 2016, first authorship among females in Radiology increased 31 percent and the number of female senior authors increased 16.5 percent. In addition, female corresponding authors increased 16.5 percent from 1980 to 2016.

In AJR, there was a 32.2 percent increase in first female authors, 24.3 percent increase in female corresponding authors and 13.5 increase in senior female authors from 1970 to 2016.

However, after 2000 the rate of increase in female first and corresponding authorship decreased by 47 percent. But the proportion of female last authorship did continue to increase.

O’Connor said that female medical students may decide not to enter the radiology field because of the perception that it doesn’t involve patient contact. However, there are opportunities for patient contact in mammography, pediatric radiology and interventional radiology.

In order to reverse this trend, O’Connor thinks there needs to be more female role models and mentors within radiology to portray it as a female-friendly specialty. Also, patient contact and career growth opportunities need to be emphasized.
