Color-blind radiologist ?

    I'm affected by a *slight* form of colour-blindness.

    Do you think that it would be impossible to me to become a radiologist?

    I do know that most radiology is gray-scale (so no problem), but maybe in the future color-based techniques could be developed...

    What's your opinion?

    Thanks in advance!

      Well, I'm no radiologist or psychic when it comes to predicting future advances, but the "color" you are seeing being added to radiologic pictures are being added by computer programs that color things in for "easier reading". It probably just takes a click of a button to turn those colors into colors that you are not blind to. IMO, if you can read the black and white films they have out today, things will only get easier for you as the technology advances.
