Abstract

Turf issues in medicine affect policy, practice, and, most importantly, patients. This article explores turf issues from several perspectives. The issue and scope of the problem is first discussed, followed by a brief history of turf delineation. Contributing and connected factors are considered, taking into account some consequences of turf battles and their impact on related topics. Finally, this article focuses on proposed strategies to successfully confront the questions, if not overcome the problems encountered. To better inform the deliberation and strengthen the credibility of any conclusions, the evidence and controversies must be regarded from beyond merely the radiology perspective.
