Radiology

Radiology is a medical specialty that employs the use of imaging to both diagnose and treat disease visualized within the body.

Interventional radiology is the performance of medical procedures with the guidance of imaging technologies. The acquisition of medical imaging is usually carried out by the radiographer or radiologic technologist. The radiologist then interprets or "reads" the images and produces a report of their findings and impression or diagnosis. This report is then transmitted to the ordering physician, either routinely or emergently.
