Greatness of Zerhouni

A heads up in case you missed this journalistic biopic of the Great Zerhouni in the National Journal … including gems such as “Partly prompted by a relative, he specialized in radiology, which seeks a clearer image of the body’s internal workings. That defined focus distinguishes radiologists from many other biological scientists, who spend their days incrementally exploring narrow niches, such as the digestive tract of C. elegans — a worm one-quarter of an inch long.”

I can’t say I have ever heard radiology described as a vocation in quite these terms, or, for that matter, radiologists described as biological scientists.
