Thank you so much for the program and for your help. I am a registered MRI tech, trained in CT, and radiology instructor. I found your program to be very well put together. I appreciated the information you shared and your cancer story took me back 12 years to my own cancer story. Frankly, it is a terrible way to learn about your career, but a great opportunity to improve on our own patient care.
