Radiology is the study of images of the human body. A Radiologist is a physician who has become a specialist in Radiology - a medical doctor who has taken additional training in the interpretation of medical images. This training usually takes 5 to 6 years after completing Medical or Osteopathic School.
Although Radiology began with the use of X-Rays and large flat sheets of photographic films, the modern Radiologist now has a variety of tools for 'taking pictures' of living patients. Many of these newer tools create an image with a computer (CT - computed tomography) and some do not use any X-Rays, nor radiation of any kind - such as a MRI and Ultrasound.
