Radiology is an innovative, rapidly developing field in patient care management - it’s used by nearly all, if not all, medical and surgical specialties. As a radiologist, while I enjoy problem solving and role as the doctor’s doctor, I also find fulfillment in direct patient care via consultations, diagnostic and therapeutic procedures.

Why is radiology important?
I love the variety in the field and how it constantly changes. I also think radiology allows us to be some of the most well rounded physicians when it comes to knowing a lot about many different medical specialties and being able to assimilate it into useful impressions that can aid in a patients diagnosis and treatment.
Radiology is so important for the field of medicine because we can see what is going on inside of the body. Not only that, as a Radiologist, we are trained to identify what is normal and abnormal, and we can interpret the images to provide insight to the clinicians about what is going on with their patients.
