Radiology is a medical specialty that uses imagery to treat and diagnose medical conditions.
The term radiology is an older term used when the x-ray was the only technique used for obtaining imagery for identifying problems. There have been advancements in imaging techniques used in this field over the past decade.
Ultrasound, CT, MRI, and PET scans are a few of the most common. Radiology is commonly referred to as diagnostic imaging. The doctor that specializes in radiology or imaging is called a radiologist.
Several different healthcare providers are combined as a team in the practice of radiology. You have a medical doctor who is the radiologist, radiologic nurses who assist the doctor, and the radiology technologist who obtains the images from the patient to be interpreted by the radiologist.
