Radiology is a branch of medicine that uses imaging technology to diagnose and treat diseases.

 

Radiology can be divided into two different areas: diagnostic radiology and interventional radiology.

 

Radiologists are doctors who specialize in diagnosing and treating diseases using medical imaging procedures such as x-rays, computed tomography (CT), magnetic resonance imaging (MRI), nuclear medicine, positron emission tomography (PET) and ultrasound.

Diagnostic Radiology

Diagnostic radiology helps doctor to see and interpret images of the internal structure of a person’s body, determine the cause of symptoms, monitor how well the patient’s body responds to the treatment he is given, screen for various diseases such as breast cancer, colon cancer or heart diseases.

Interventional radiology

Interventional radiologists are doctors who use imaging to perform procedures, such as CT, ultrasound, MRI, and fluoroscopy. This helps the doctor inject catheters, wires, and other small instruments into the patient's body without hurting him.

 

The technology is used to diagnose or treat conditions in almost any part of the body.

 

Interventional radiologists treat cancer or tumors, blockage of arteries and veins, uterine myoma, back pain, liver and kidney problems.
