I work with Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) which uses magnet and radio waves to create detailed 3D images of the body. The brain, spinal cord, nerves, muscles, ligaments and tendons are most commonly assessed with MRI. Sometimes, I see claustrophobic patients who refuse to go into the MRI machine but eventually went through with their scans with my assurance and coaxing. They motivate me to be better at my job.
I see radiology as bridge between technology and the patient. It’s never a mundane job as I see many patients with different clinical diagnoses and every day, I am learning something new.
