Hi, I'm currently a post-bacc premed student. I have a ton of clinical experience, and out of everything I've seen, I'm most interested in and enamored with diagnostic radiology. I recently had to have a liver / gallbladder ultrasound, an ECG, and a brain MRI—I'm hooked! This is honestly the most amazing stuff I've ever seen in my entire life. My question is, does a diagnostic radiologist's career involve simply reading scans and making diagnoses based on these all day? If so, does this get boring or, if you will, monotonous? Is this a personally fulfilling career? Is it, dare I say, fun? Also, do DRADs tend to miss taking care of patients, or do people choose DR because of the comparatively small amount of patient care involved? Is there any substantial patient contact inherent in the job, or is that the realm of the IR docs? Any pros/cons of diagnostic radiology would be really appreciated. I can't get enough of this stuff…I've been literally staring at my MRI films and comparing them with Netter's Anatomy. What an amazing field of medicine!
