All medical doctors have stress especially during your residency period (16 hr workdays). I once considered radiology because it's not a public face-to-face position with the patients, you just read x-rays and relay the info to their doctor. You probably have to hustle to get those reads done quickly tho. Takes a long time to specialize in radiology, 5-6 years after 4 yrs of med school. Get a health care careers book at the library.

If you were asking about becoming a radiology tech (the people who take the x-rays) then run away now!! Repetitive motions cause joint problems and pain, also dealing with some very sick people and positioning them on the x-ray machine. My buddy who trained in this said the tech school brought in hobos to practice x-rays on (i guess county hospital didn't want to pay their x-ray bill)

What is low cycle fatigue?

According to the low cycle fatigue, the nominal maximum stress values are less than the ultimate tensile stress limit. Low cycle fatigue is failure under a stress reversal after less than 1000 cycles and generally occurs in metals where strains are very high, where stresses are in the plastic region High cycle fatigue is failure under a stress reversal after more than 1000 cycles and generally occurs in metals where strains are low, caused by defects, and growth, where stresses are in the elastic region

What does it mean if you have a high value for youngs modulus 8333.3 compared to a low value 1200?

Young's modulus is stress/strain. So if the modulus is high, it means that the stress value is greater compare to that of the material where the modulus is low. or in other words, the strain is very less compared to that of the material having low Young's modulus. So it tells that, if a material has high Young's modulus, the material requires more load for deformation of shape (within elastic limit).
