President Barack Obama on Wednesday signed the American Taxpayer Relief Act of 2012, popularly known as the "fiscal cliff" legislation. The measure delays for one year an almost 27% cut in doctor fees under the Medicare sustainable growth rate formula. The bill, however, compensates for the SGR fix with budget cuts in other areas, including $800 million in fee cuts in radiology and $300 million in cuts in radiation oncology.
