CRASH! podcast: Episode 3: Breaking through

In this episode we talk to radiologists that have committed to a career in academic radiology and research. Among other things, we explore the big questions they are trying to tackle, how travel is a boon to their research, and what they would say to themselves at the start of their training if they had the chance.
