Clinical Radiology

Clinical radiology is a specialized part of medicine that uses state-of-the-art devices and a series of techniques to obtain images of the interior parts of the body.

Clinical radiologists (radiologists) are qualified physicians who have completed another five years of additional study and intensive training to specialize in their field. They are trained to perform and interpret medical images to diagnose and, at times, treat injuries and diseases of all parts of the body.

 

Your doctor or specialist may refer you to a clinical radiologist.

  • X-rays 
  • Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI)
  • Ultrasound (sometimes called sonograms/sonograms)
  • Computed tomography (computed tomography): these were previously known as CT (computerized axial tomography)
  • Fluoroscopy: a continuous x-ray similar to an 'X-ray film'
  • Nuclear scans: such as bone scans, thyroid scans, and PET scans
  • Interventional radiology: Radiologists treat abscesses, pain conditions, blocked arteries and tumors using images obtained by fluoroscopy, computed tomography, ultrasound and magnetic resonance imaging.
