"As a radiologist with sub-specialty interest in musculoskeletal radiology, I interpret scan images for patients with orthopaedic and sports injuries. In radiology, we use various modalities such as X-rays, CT scanners and MRI, just to name a few.
Radiology is a medical speciality that has rapidly grown over the past couple of decades due to technological advances and has now become an indispensable part of patient care.
The disease is like a crime and radiologists are like the detectives solving it. We have to search for clues, sometimes subtle clues. We then link the clues we see on the images to the patient's condition and come to a diagnosis.
I enjoy the fact that every day when you come to work, you have no idea what you are going to see that day. Every day and every patient is different."
