Radiology represents a branch of medicine that uses medical imaging techniques, such as X-rays, CT and MRI, in the diagnosis and treatment of disease.
Radiology is the practice of imaging of your body using ionizing radiation, which differs from MRI and ultrasound imaging that do not use ionizing radiation. Through advanced speed-of-light radiation, we can see inside of your body. Because some of these imaging techniques involve the use of radiation, UMC Radiologists have training and understanding of radiation safety and protection. Radiology is often vital to helping achieve a diagnosis for a patient.
