What is Radiology?
Radiology is very important for the diagnosis of many diseases. Radiology is also known as diagnostic imaging. It involves series of different tests that take pictures of various parts of the body. Most of these tests are innovative that allow the doctors to gauge inside the body. There are various imaging tests done such as X-ray, ultrasound, MRI, CT scan, PET scan, etc. Radiologists access a wide spectrum of diagnostic tests that include X-rays, ultrasound, bone mineral densitometry, nuclear medicine, fluoroscopy, mammography, CT & MRI.
Why Is the Need for Radiology?
Radiology is extremely important for the diagnosis of many diseases, particularly cancer. Timely diagnosis can emerge as a life-saver. How can you treat the patient without a diagnosis? So, the first diagnosis and then there will be treatment and cure.

Types of Diagnostic Imaging Tests
Radiology is a specialized field of medical science where a medical doctor called the radiologist trained to use medical imaging so that it helps in diagnosing, accessing, and treating the disease. The imaging techniques used in radiology include:
1. X-rays: x-ray is a type of radiation known as electromagnetic waves used for taking inside pictures of the body.
2. CT Scan: Computerized tomography (CT) scan involves a series of X-ray images taken from various angles of your body and also take cross-sectional images of the bones, blood vessels, and soft tissues. These images are taken for detailed assessment.
3. MRI: Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) is an imaging technique as part of radiology to take pictures of the anatomy and physiological processes of the body.
4. Mammogram: Mammography is the low-energy X-rays used to examine the human breast for diagnosis & screening.
5. Ultrasound: Ultrasound is a type of imaging test that involves using sound waves to produce photos of organs, tissues, and other inside structures of the body.
6. Fluoroscopy: Fluoroscopy is a type of imaging technique that shows a continuous X-ray image on a monitor, just as an X-ray movie.
7. PET scans: The positron emission tomography (PET) scan is an imaging technique that shows how the tissues and organs are functioning inside the body.
