Title: Facts You Should Know About Radiology


1
Facts You Should Know About Radiology
2
Whats Radiology?
  • Radiology is a science of high energy radiation
    it includes the study of all the sources of
    radiation and the biological, chemical as well as
    physical effects of those radiations.
  • The term radiology refers generally to the
    diagnosis as well as treatment of diseases.

3
Is A Radiologist A Doctor?
  • Radiologists are a doctor or MD, in fact, and
    they could be even doctors of osteopathic
    medicine or DOs.
  • The DOs at the centre of radiologist Las Vegas
    NV are specialists doctors who engage in
    diagnosis and treatment of various diseases and
    injuries with the use of wide range of imaging
    techniques such as magnetic resonance imaging,
    also known as MRI, nuclear medicine, CT scan
    which stands for computed tomography, PET or
    positron emission tomography, x ray Las Vegas,
    and ultrasound.

  • For a person to become a radiologist, theyd need
    to graduate from one accredited medical school,
    pass the licensing exams, and then complete their
    residency program for at least four years.
  • Radiologists have to go through fellowship
    program too, one to two additional years for
    their specialized training in specific
    sub-specialties of radiology, such as nuclear
    medicine, breast imaging, and cardiovascular
    radiology.
  • For instance, to become qualifies to perform
    open sided MRI Las Vegas, one would need to
    sub-specialize in MRI imaging.

5
What Role Do Radiologists Plat In Health Care?
  • Radiologists generally act as specialists or
    expert consultants who are referred to by
    physicians, or other types of doctor, when you go
    to them with certain condition or disease of
    yours.

  • The doctor may ask you to get a particular test
    done by a radiologist or may refer you to a
    radiologist whod then help you choose a
    screening test or the right examination and then
    interpret the result for you.
  • These test results would be the basis for your
    diagnosis and youd be treated accordingly.
  • A radiologist may recommend some additional scan
    such as open sided MRI Las Vegas, or additional
    treatment, whenever necessary.
  • Their job also includes directing the radiology
    technologist (the person who is engaged in
    operation the radiology equipment) with
    performing the scan or examination.

7
What Are The Most Common Radiological Procedures?
  • The most popularly used ad common radiological
    procedures include CT scan, Mammogram, x ray Las
    Vegas, ultrasound, and MRI.

8
  • X-ray involves a kind of electromagnetic
    radiation that is passed through your body in a
    manner that it generates a 2D image of the
    specific region of your body that is being
    scanned.
  • X-ray is a highly used technology that is used to
    detect problems and damage of bone of muscle
    including muscle injures and broken bones. A
    common for of this x-ray technology is mammogram.
  • CT scan, which is short for computed tomography,
    is a more advanced form of x ray, which is made
    sophisticated with the addition of computer
    technology so as to generate several 2D images
    that helps create a 3D image of the specific
    region of the body being scanned.
  • CT scans are often used to detect and diagnose
    aneurysm, cancer, and heart diseases.
