Answer: Yes, during a normal day, they wear the typical nurse/doctor looking scrubs. But when the are performing x-rays and such, they have to wear a lead coated apron or something, to stop the radiation penetrating their bodies un-necessarily.
Answer: Radiologists work with many types of doctors, which may reflect their subspecialty training if any. General radiologist most commonly work with emergency physicians, primary care physicians, internists and surgeons. Subspecialists such as neuroradiologists have more contact with neurosurgeons and neurologists. Breast imagers will have more contact with breast surgeons, pathologists, and oncologists.
After a Diagnostic radiology residency 5 years, there are specialties in radiology that provide a certificate of qualification. The accredited programs currently include Neuroradiology, Pediatrics, and Interventional. Other programs include Body imaging, Breast imaging, Musculoskeletal, MRI, etc but these do not have an additional examination.
Answer: You should take as much Biology as possible for any medical field. The understanding of the body will help you in your studies.
Also, the dissecting will get you a little more used to grossness. You may or may not realize this, but sometimes the xrays you take will be of some pretty nasty/gross injuries. (bones sticking out of breaks, etc.)
I would also take a good deal of advanced math just in case.
My cousin has been a radiologist for years, and says there is math involved as well.
Answer: Radiologist is a medical doctor specialised in intepreting medical scans (x-ray/mri/cat etc.). Radiographer is someone who takes the actual medical scans and X-ray technician is works under the radiographer in terms of hierachy.
Answer: Hertz Equipment Rental provides a wide variety of rental services. These include construction equipment, aerial equipment, safety equipment as well as the trucks and trailers that would be expected from a vehicle rental company.
Answer: Yes! My girlfriend and I just took a graduate medical physics course titled, "Radiation Biology" in the physics department. We are both chemists. This course was taught by four professors: a chemist, a biologist, a physicist, and a medical physicist.
Radiation causes all types of chemistry to occur. In our bodies radiation, such as gamma- or X-rays can cause the production oxygen radicals or superoxide radicals, which then react with anything in the vicinity--hopefully tumor cells. This is just a small example of the types of reactions that can occur. Also, simple x-rays are based on principles taught in chemistry. I relate taking an x-ray to taking a transmittance reading on a spec 20--Where transmittance is the ratio of the intensity of light transmitted through a medium over the initial intensity of that light. There are many more examples. Hope this helps!
Answer: I am the 3rd most revered radiologist in the world. In undergrad I was a pottery major with a ancient world history minor, and I went on to Berkley to study Theramin after that. My only background in radiology is a radio operations class I took at WHUS, a radio station in Storrs, CT. A monkey could be a radiologist.
