Guest Speaker ~ Kirti Kulkarni, MD


TiMe students had the opportunity to interact with Dr. Kirti Kulkarni of the University of Chicago’s Cancer Center. Dr. Kulkarni provided them an in-depth understanding of the day-to-day interactions of a radiologist with patients and physician colleagues, and also discussed the complexities of radiological reading. There were conversations and discussions of improvements in radiological and pathological software, and how bioengineering and bioinformatics impact the understanding of disease progressing. Questions arose about how cancer metastasizes to different areas of the body, how to try and understand the differences between each patient diagnosis, and overall the understanding, processes, and collaboration that occurs to care and treat patients.
