There are multiple subspecialties in Radiology, so each of my partners daily work is quite different. I am an Interventional radiologist. I spend about half my time looking at Medical Imaging ( CT, x-ray, ultrasound, and MRI) to diagnose diseases. The other half of my time is spent performing procedures. We use ultrasound, CT, and x-ray to guide various Tools into different parts of the body to diagnose and treat illness. We can open and close arteries and veins as necessary. We also inject radiation and chemotherapy directly into tumors.
I work for a large corporation and enjoy the people I work with and the work I perform. I get up early before the alarm clock rings and get dressed for work. I work in an office building in downtown Chicago so I dress appropriately. I start the morning by reading and responding to my Email and Messages. I check the status on the billing and accounting processes and systems to maker sure there are no problems. During the day I review the accounting reports that are sent to me and check for any issues. If I have a question on one of the reports I will either set up a meeting or call the person to discuss. Each month I will review over $500,000,000 of accounting entries that affects the company's financial statements such as revenue, expense and accounts receivables. These financial statement will be used by investors and governmental agencies. During the day I will be attend hour long meeting to discuss proposed changes in our processes or resolving problems. At the end of the day I feel a sense of accomplishment and look forward to tomorrow's challenges.
