Top Radiologist Interview Questions & How to Answer

Here are three top radiologist interview questions and tips on how to answer them:

Question No. 1: How would you deal with a patient who starts panicking while undergoing a CT scan?

How to answer: Many patients experience claustrophobia while undergoing CT scans or MRIs, and knowing how to keep them calm, reassure them and make sure they stay still is important in order to obtain clear images. Say that you would let the patient take a break from scanning and calm down for a little while. You can also mention that you would give them a mild sedative if needed.

Question No. 2: How would you handle a disagreement with another doctor about interpreting an X-ray?

How to answer: Radiologists often work with other doctors, and resolving conflicts is important. Say that you would consider the other person's opinion and ask a third professional to take a look if you cannot reach an agreement. This shows that you prioritise the patient's welfare.

Question No. 3: At your last job, which types of scans did you conduct most frequently?

How to answer: This question gives you a chance to talk about your previous experience. Discuss the types of patients you worked with, the tests you conducted and which areas of the body you looked at most frequently.
