When asked what he finds most exciting about the field of radiology, Dr. Patil says he enjoys it all. "I like working with leading-edge modalities and interacting with patients," he says. "Everything is interesting about what we do. I enjoy each day."
Dr. Patil's clinical focus includes body imaging (CT, ultrasound, MRI and "virtual colonoscopy") and women's imaging (mammography, breast MRI and breast interventions such as stereotactic and ultrasound-guided biopsies). He regularly collaborates with oncologists and breast surgeons, as well as breast imaging patients.
