About Your Radiologist

A radiologist is a medical doctor with an average of more than thirteen years of education and training!

A radiologist’s education starts with a four-year undergraduate degree and another four years of medical school. After that, they undergo an internship that lasts a year or more, followed by four years of a diagnostic radiology residency where they learn how to read and interpret diagnostic images. Some radiologists also undergo another one to two years of advanced sub-specialized training, also known as a “fellowship.” Their sub-specialization may be in a particular area of the body (e.g. musculoskeletal or breast), with a particular imaging modality (e.g. MRI or mammography) or in interventional radiology (e.g. vascular disease or cancer treatment).
