What Is A Radiologist?

UCSF Radiologist Dr. Dillon explains what is a radiologist and what training is necessary to join the highly-specialized team at the UCSF Radiology Department.

Radiologists are medical doctors and following medical school they’ve trained usually four to five years in radiology residency.  Additionally, most of UCSF’s radiologists undergo a fellowship which is one to two years in length in subspecialty of radiology that typically parallels the specialties of medicine.
