AI Adoption in Radiology: Looking Beyond the Hype with Dr Dan Fascia (Chair of RCR Informatics Committee)
This month we chat to Dr Dan Fascia who is a Consultant Musculoskeletal Radiologist, Regional Clinical Director of the Yorkshire Imaging Collaborative and Chair of the RCR Informatics Committee.

Exploring IR Opportunities Overseas with Dr Rahil Kassamali
This month we chat to Dr Rahil Kassamali, a British Interventional Radiologist who in 2020 quit the NHS and took up a post at Hamad Medical Corporation, Qatar. IR is often neglected in discussions around Radiologists working abroad so he gives us a great insight into how made the switch and whether he would recommend it to others. His experience of working in a public healthcare system in Qatar also provides an interesting contrast to our episode 52 guest, Umi's, experience of working in private healthcare in Dubai.
