The rapidly advancing technology seems fascinating to me. Radiologists not only interpret studies now, but they perform all kinds of interventional studies and procedures. For example, they perform CT guided biopsies, close off blood supply to tumors, and block aneurysms before they rupture.
Hi, I am not a radiologist, but I think the most exciting part is to be able and capable to know what to look for in the body, to find something that isn't supposed to be there and figure out or help figure out what it is. And there are different miraculous things like finding and being able to listen to the heartbeat of a baby, to find out something so valuable in the findings that you know it will be a game changer or it will help save the life of the patient, and see the expression of the patients when you tell them good news, But as good and bad go hand in hand, all this also becomes not-so-exciting when they find out something that shouldn't have been there, and is life threatening, and there is nothing they can do about it. Being the bearer of bad news is never easy. But I think this goes for all the medical fields. All the fields have their different goods and bads, but in my observation. the excitement in this field is the finding of the unknown things. I hope this gives you a little help and perspective.
Radiology is an exciting and dynamic field. For me personally, the procedures are the most exciting. For example, we recently introduced Y-90 radioembolization at our hospital. This provides a new opportunity to treat liver cancers and prolong lives.
