Radiology Jobs Decreasing?

According to this Aunt Minnie article, demand for Radiologist has decreased over the past 3 years. I can only think that this is due in large part to PACS implementations that are making each Radiologist more efficient allowing practices to do more work with less Radiologists.

I found the most interesting point in this article is that even though the demand for Radiologists has decreased the salaries have increased. This again I believe shows that Radiologists are being compensated better due to the fact that they are doing more work with the assistance of PACS systems.
