    Gamma radiation does not accumulate in the body. Some nuclear medicine studies use radioisotopes that can accumulate in the body, but one would have to take these intentionally to be exposed.

    If you do not want to work doctors hours, it is simple, do not go into medicine. If you really do not want to do this job, then even if you find a relatively easy niche eventually, premed, med school, and training will be torture.

    Medical researchers also work very hard. They do not have clinical work imposed on them at all hours of the night, but they are expected to be very productive of research, quality and quantity, or they are out of work.

    There are service elements to radiologist work that are difficult to outsource.
