Breast Radiology is an exciting specialty, which is constantly evolving with the emergence of new technologies. There are extensive opportunities for involvement in innovative research, not only in technological advances, but also personalised screening, risk prediction, and breast cancer diagnosis and management.
Life as a breast radiologist
Breast radiologists work autonomously in symptomatic and/or screening assessment clinics, performing imaging and interventional procedures. Breast radiologists are part of a wider multidisciplinary team, playing a vital role in breast cancer diagnosis and management.
Breast radiologists may take on senior leadership, research and education roles in addition to their clinical duties.

How to become
Medical degree, post-graduate qualification in radiology and experience working in breast.
Radiologists may take on a role as a breast radiologist immediately following completion of their radiology specialist training. Some radiologists may opt to apply for a post as a NBIA fellow in breast radiology prior to pursuing a consultant post. This is not mandatory but is a valuable way of enhancing existing skills.
