Radiology is a medical specialty that applies radiation to diagnose and treat various diseases and conditions. Radiation is used either for therapeutic purpose, or imaging studies.
When used for diagnosing medical conditions, radiation provides energy source for imaging tests. This procedure is also referred to as Radioscopy. The radiation helps doctors to visually scan the internal condition of the human body without any invasive procedure.
Radiologists specialize in diagnosing and treating injuries and diseases using Radiology procedures, such as, X-rays, computed tomography (CT), magnetic resonance imaging (MRI), nuclear medicine, positron emission tomography (PET) and ultrasound.
The most common forms of diagnostic Radiology procedures include:
- Computed tomography (CT), also known as a computerized axial tomography (CAT) scan, including CT angiography
- Fluoroscopy, including upper GI and barium enema
- Plain x-rays, which includes chest x-ray
- Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) and magnetic resonance angiography (MRA)
- Nuclear medicine, which includes such tests as a bone scan, thyroid scan,
and thallium cardiac stress test
- Positron emission tomography, also called PET imaging, PET scan, or PET-CT when it is combined with CT
Interventional Radiologists are medical specialists who use imaging techniques such as, CT scan, ultrasound, MRI, and fluoroscopy to exactly detect a condition and help determine precise treatment procedures. Interventional Radiologists play a key role, particularly in treating peripheral vascular disease, renal artery disease, and so many others.
Specialists in Interventional Radiology frequently use the technology in treating
Cancers | Tumors | Blockages in the arteries and veins | Fibroids in the uterus | Back pain
Liver problems | Kidney problems
You should seriously consider seeing and consulting a Radiologist, if you start experiencing symptoms without any apparent root or reason. Generally, a Radiologist is referred by a general physician. The Radiology expert can help the doctor to have a better understanding of the patient’s condition.
