A growing number of radiation oncologists use smartphones for work reasons

While radiologists have showed a steady increase in adoption of smartphones for professional purposes since 2011, radiation oncologists have actually seen much larger rise of 20 percentage points year-over-year, according to the Sources & Interactions 2013 Study – Radiology Edition.

More than half of all radiation oncologists surveyed currently use smartphone apps for work reasons and they are more likely than radiologists to do so. Among this group, the most popular mobile app used for professional purposes (among those we study) are diagnostic tools/clinical reference.
