Session 105 There are no typical days in radiology. Dr. Anjali Malik joins me to talk about breast imaging, guided biopsy, and what it means to develop a diagnostic “eye.” For more resources, check out all our other great podcasts on Meded Media. Listen to this podcast episode with the player above, or keep reading for the highlights and takeaway points. [01:25] Interest in Radiology and Breast Imaging Radiology Anjali's interest in Radiology and Breast Imaging Radiology happened at the same time during her internal medicine rotation. After reading the book, Felson's Primer for Chest Radiology, this made her realize that the whole science of imaging was far more interesting than she knew it could be. Immediately after internal medicine rotation, she worked with a breast surgeon in a community setting, particularly in New Orleans (prior to Hurricane Katrina). Post-Hurricane Katrina, he came to Tulane University and tried to recreate the heavy breast surgery practice. She had seen a lot more breast surgeries than an average surgery medical student did. That being said, she was exposed to the breast surgery population. She likes the pathology, the patients, and procedures. However, she didn't want surgery or do 5 years of general surgery to go on to breast surgery. So her mentor pointed her to the direction of breast imaging radiology at Tulane. Anjali also has a background in public health and did her BA in Public Health at Johns Hopkins. She feels every part of the field spoke to her. [Related episode: Interventional Radiology: Community Doc Shares Story] [05:25] Traits that Lead to Becoming a Good Breast Imaging Radiologist Anjali points out that to be a good breast imaging radiologist, you have to be cerebral and have problem-solving skills and spatial awareness. You have to be patient and observant. Having a good eye is also helpful. As much as pattern recognition is important, you should also be patient, thorough, and be able to direct a surgeon on they should approach the case. [Related episode: Community Breast Oncologist and Researcher Shares Her Career] [06:30] Types of Cases In breast imaging radiology, you're screening for breast cancer. Possible cases include invasive, ductal or ductal carcinoma in situ, or lobular carcinoma, papillary carcinoma, and the occasional medullary or mucinous carcinoma. They basically diagnose all sorts of system and processes within the breast. They regularly diagnose lymphoma via the axillary lymph nodes seen on screening mammograms. Sometimes, within the breast, they see an enlarged lymph node and are able to provide a primary diagnosis on something not known. Other cases they diagnose include tuberculosis, sarcoidosis, and amyloidosis. They also deal with the more benign things that happen within the breast like fibroadenomas in young, reproductive-aged females. Lactating females can get lactational adenomas, galactocoele, mastitis, etc. Outside of being breast imaging radiologist, Anjali practices general radiology.  She's doing body ultrasound on a daily basis. Some cases she sees are nodules, ovarian cysts, fibroids, and cancer of all of the above organs. For her, being able to use imaging as a tool has shaped medicine and she's excited to see more of what will come. [08:30] Typical Day Anjali describes having no typical day as it varies day-to-day. Even if she does the same thing in theory everyday, every patient presents something new and different. She could do biopsies or ultrasound and mammogram-guided biopsies of the breast. There are also some days she's doing MRI-guided biopsies or ultrasound-guided fine-needle aspirations of the thyroid or lymph nodes. She may also be reading screening mammograms and 3-D mammography. In between, she does radiographs and bone densities. She could be calling patients with results or calling doctors with findings. There are also days when she does diagnostic mammography. This covers any woman that has been called back from a screening examin
