WHAT DOES RADIOLOGY MEAN IN ENGLISH?

radiology

Radiology

Radiology is a medical specialty that employs the use of imaging to both diagnose and treat disease visualized within the body. Radiologists use an array of imaging technologies such as X-ray radiography, ultrasound, computed tomography, nuclear medicine, positron emission tomography and magnetic resonance imaging to diagnose or treat diseases. 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.

Definition of radiology in the English dictionary

The definition of radiology in the dictionary is the use of X-rays and radioactive substances in the diagnosis and treatment of disease.
