Female radiation oncologists collect less in US Medicare reimbursement dollars than their male counterparts, even when they see similar numbers of patients, according to a new study.

Depending on the setting, female radiation oncologists collected an average of US$27,000-$143,000 (Australian $38,114-$201,865) less than their male counterparts in 2016, the authors report in JAMA Network Open.
