A small crack in the bone, a tiny bump on the intestine, nothing can be missed. As a Radiologist, you must be extra observant to scan for any abnormal tissues in the body or cracks on the bones of your patient. This prevents a repeat of the same test and earlier detection is always the best for your patients.
Knowledge of general medicine and surgery
Despite being a specialist in Radiology, you will need the basic knowledge of general medicine and surgery to advise your patients on their procedures or next action that they can take to treat their illnesses. You will also need to explain to them on relevant areas such as treatment, what they can do to make the condition better, consequences and so on.
You will be spending a lot of time talking to your patients, learning about their medical history, the risks and benefits of going through certain procedure, the type of diagnosis or treatment that they should go for including the type of doctors they should seek. In this case, you will need to convey the information in the simplest form instead of using jargons so that your patients will understand you thoroughly.
Candidates must at least possess a degree in Medicine or any of the relevant degree. After completing your housemanship, usually 2 years, you will need to attend specialised training and acquire higher qualification before you can officially become a Radiologist.
The working hours of a Radiologist is long and irregular. You will need to work overtime including weekends and holidays.
