Diagnostic Radiology

Diagnostic radiology is a field of medicine that uses non-invasive imaging scans to diagnose a patient. The tests and equipment sometimes involves low doses of radiation to create highly detailed images of an area. 

Diagnostic Radiology can be used to identify a wide range of problems, as well as monitor how your body is responding to a current treatment.

Examples of diagnostic radiology include:

  • X-ray- produces images of the interior of the body without incisions
  • Ultrasound- produces images of the inside of the body using sound waves, with no radiation exposure
  • CT (Computed Tomography) scan- combines a series of X-ray images taken from different angles and creates cross-sectional images to provide more detailed information
  • MRI (Magnetic Resonance Imaging) scans- uses a magnetic field to produce images inside of the body; used for parts of the body that CT scanners cannot produce images of
  • Nuclear Medicine Scans – utilizes small amounts of radiotracers to create an image of the desired areas in the bodys
