Deskripsyon ng trabaho

Radiologists are physicians who specialize in obtaining and interpreting diagnostic images of patients (such as x-rays). They are also tasked with documenting their findings in comprehensive reports.

Mga Aspeto ng Kapaki-pakinabang sa Karera
  • Intellectually stimulating tasks and problem-solving challenges
  • A sense of meaningful achievement through helping to improve a patient’s quality of life
Ang Inside Scoop
Mga Pananagutan sa Trabaho
  • Compile and study information about the patient’s medical history (e.g. from electronic records, patient appointments, or from referring physicians)
  • Conduct diagnostic imaging procedures (e.g. MRIs, CT scans, etc.)
  • Interpret the images to detect abnormalities that account for the patient’s symptoms
  • Record information (e.g. entering data and storing images) from appointments and relay examination results to referring physicians, patients, or families in comprehensive interpretive reports
  • Radiologists may also recommend further lines of investigation (e.g. blood testing)
  • Apart from diagnosis, scans may also be performed as part of follow-up treatment (e.g. to determine if prescribed therapy is working)
  • Radiologists may also be asked to consult with other physicians in multidisciplinary meetings to give their perspective on how scans correlate to the patient’s other diagnostics
  • Radiologists may also be expected to supervise trainees; an especially important task since radiology is a highly specialized field
