Radiology's Not for Me Either

Right now I'm doing a radiology elective.

While I knew radiology wasn't for me, this rotation has confirmed it. It's not that I don't like looking at the x-rays and scans, but I can't stand only seeing the pictures. I want to meet the patients and get the story. I want to know if your skull fractures are due to a motor vehicle accident or domestic violence. I want to know where you have arm numbness and what makes it better or worse. Heck, I want to meet the patient and not just see a picture of the patient.

So, radiologists, thank you. Someone has to do it and I'm glad it's not me.

I am an x-ray tech and I don't get how our docs do it. I could not look at a computer screen all day. I am with you, I love the patient interaction of my job.
