Anurag Chahal, MD

Diagnostic Radiology Resident

Graduation Year:

Hometown: Gurgaon, Haryana - a city 40 kms south of New Delhi, India.

I chose MIR because: My medical school is a premier institute for medical education in India and being an alum is a special feeling of pride among all of its alumni. I sensed a similar feeling here at Mallinckrodt and I knew I had to come here. Residents want to stay as fellows and faculty because they just fall in love with the people and the program.

My favorite radiology sign: deep sulcus sign - it can potentially save a life!

My personal interests: Running, hiking, sports, just about anything outdoors.

My favorite website: Before 5 pm, Radiopaedia; after 5 pm, YouTube

I'm excited about living in St. Louis because: Running in Forest Park. I usually run to the Art Museum which is 2.5 miles and soak the beauty of its palatial gardens.

Something most people don’t know about me: I can do a headstand for about 5 minutes; however, the skill keeps fading with senility.

What attracted me to radiology: Radiology has all the answers. It gives us the anatomical diagnosis, even when it is occult. And IR, in its full might (i.e. image-guided therapy), is essentially modern medicine.

My favorite quote: "Nobody cares how much you know until they know how much you care.”

My final thoughts: I was told last year in my surgical internship, “Going forward you will realize this program is a family, and you carry the family name. Never do anything that would disrespect the family.” I loved my internship program but I love Mallinckrodt even more, because this is my true family.
