A radiologist is a physician who specialises in using medical imaging techniques to diagnose and treat disease and injury.
A radiograph (x-ray) is a noninvasive medical diagnostic that aids doctors in diagnosing and treating medical disorders. X-rays are the most common and oldest type of medical imaging.
Mammography is a diagnostic and screening procedure that involves the use of low-dose amplitude X-rays to examine the human breast. Mammography aids in the early identification of breast cancer by detecting distinctive masses and/or microcalcifications.
CT or CAT scans are specialised x-ray diagnostics that use x-rays and a computer to create cross-sectional images of the body. These images allow a radiologist to examine the inside of the body. It gives a close look at a variety of bodily components in great detail. Any portion of the body can be scanned using a CT scan. CT scans of internal organs, bone, soft tissue, and blood vessels provide greater resolution and disclose more details than traditional x-ray tests, allowing radiologists to diagnose diseases including cancer, cardiovascular disease, infectious disease, trauma, and musculoskeletal disorders more quickly.
Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) creates detailed images of the inside of your body using a strong magnetic field and radio waves. Muscles, joints, bone marrow, blood arteries, nerves, and other structures in your body can all be seen using an MRI scan. An MRI scan can produce detailed images of almost any portion of the body.
DEXA scanning, or dual energy X-ray absortiometry, is the most extensively used method for determining bone mineral density.
The fluoroscopy technique Digital Subtraction Angiography (DSA) is used in interventional radiology to clearly see blood arteries in a bony or thick soft tissue environment. DSA is most commonly used to see blood vessels.
Ultrasound is a type of high-frequency sound that penetrates freely through the body’s fluid and soft tissues and is used to:
- Check for anomalies in the growth of an unborn kid.
- Detect anomalies in heart valves and other heart components.
- Diagnose liver, gallbladder (including gallstones), pancreas, thyroid gland, lymph nodes, ovaries, testes, kidneys, bladder, and breast issues.
- Detect inappropriate blood vessel widening (aneurysms)
Some scans require you to not eat anything for hours prior to the scan. Some scans require you to drink a lot of water before the scan. And you should not wear any form of jewelry for a scan. Make sure to check with your doctor for the do’s and don’ts well before your scan.
Metal can obstruct the proper operation of an imaging machine, particularly a magnetic resonance imaging machine (MRI). Before the scan, make sure your doctor knows if you have any metal or other implanted devices in your body.
