I work with patients as part of their team to guide treatment planning. Though radiologists aren’t usually patient facing, we get to learn a lot about patients, their conditions and watch treatments develop over time. We see a wide variety of cases.
A lot of advancements have occurred in imaging, and they are really essential to the care of oncology patients.
Fred Hutch has highly specialized providers who work together every day, multiple times per day, with collegiality and extensive communication. I have also worked in private practice in places outside of Seattle, and this is just not something that is available everywhere.
