What Does a Radiologist Do?

Working as a radiologist is a very interesting and satisfying field that allows its practitioners to provide diagnostic studies and radiation therapy for patients. Radiologist technicians perform invasive and non-invasive diagnostic procedures and studies and procedures and then report the results of those findings back to a medical physician.Radiology is a broad field that has a number of specialties. These fields include:

  • Interventional Radiology
  • Nuclear Medicine

Among the more common radiology studies that are performed include:

  • Computerized Tomography (CT)
  • Fluoroscopy
  • Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI)
  • Mammography
  • Nuclear medicine
  • Radiograph or traditional X-ray
  • Sonography or ultrasound

These procedures are used in order to gather diagnostic information, deliver radiologic treatments, and perform interventional procedures that are to advance the health and wellness for patients.
