Linda’s Answer

It has been one of the most satisfying jobs that you could hope for. There are so many different areas that you can work in. Some days are harder and more trying than others. Some days are the most satisfying and challenging that you could ever have. You can see and learn so many different things and new medical procedures and practices are coming out all the time. When I started in 1982 things were very different. In a matter of just years after I graduated my father was having a cardiac cath and angioplasty that saved his life. My future father in law died before this technology was available. Things change so fast and medical improvements are constantly advancing. It is an exciting time to be in the medical field.

Daily life for my specialty, radiology

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 love it...it is fulfilling to help diagnose and treat my patients. I have been a gynecologist for 30 years, and I still enjoy going to work.
