Erik’s Answer

Hi Daniela,
This is a difficult question to answer because it is completely subjective. For instance, I want to become a radiologist myself. I love figuring out diagnoses based on the images that were obtained from incredible and innovative imaging equipment. I love everything about it. Keep in mind that I am not a radiologist yet; I still have a long way to get to that point, but I was set on becoming a radiologist since I was 12 years old.

With that being said, everyone has his/her own desires/opinions/likes and dislikes, which will eventually play a role in your decisions. I would recommend the path of radiology to you if you told me that you were interested in looking at images of the body (x-ray, MRI, CT, PET scans etc.), if you liked connecting the dots between symptoms and what you saw in the images, and if you enjoyed the innovative technology that keeps coming out as time passes.
I hope this answered your question to some extent.
Erik Melekh.

Radiology is a fantastic field of medicine that is always changing with new technologies. It's a great job, and radiologists not only read studies but also perform lots of procedures using imaging guidance. Radiologists are in high demand and have lots of opportunities.
Good luck!
