What is Radiologist ?
A radiologist is a type of doctor who specializes in medical imaging. Radiologists analyze images, such as X-rays, to help diagnose, monitor, and treat various conditions or injuries.
Radiologists are different than radiographers. Although both of these professionals work with medical imaging, radiographers are the people who operate the machinery.
What does radiologist do?
Radiologists can work in clinical practices, hospitals, or universities. The job of radiologists varies depending on their specialty.
All radiologists work with medical imaging methods, which include:
- computed tomography (CT) scans
- MRI scans
- emission tomography (PET) scans
- nuclear medicine
- fusion imaging
Most of these techniques involve the use of radiation. Radiologists are highly trained in keeping people safe from the harmful effects of radiation.
These professionals can help other doctors decide on the right imaging method to use and understand what the results mean for treatment. They can also help interpret different images and other test results to make a diagnosis or monitor whether current treatments are working.
There are several different specialties of radiology, including:
- Diagnostic radiology
- Interventional radiology
- Radiation oncology
- Medical physics
