Actually, radiologists don't operate the equipment. Trained technicians do that.

Radiologists interpret the films, and traditionally they dictate the
portions of their reports that can't be communicated by checking boxes on a
form. They also talk with other physicians over the phone a lot.

Since they got through medical school, you have to assume that they know how
to read; nonetheless, they're probably more comfortable communicating
orally. It's not a big surprise to hear that one of them has asked for a
software manual on audio tape. ...RM
