Radiology is a medical specialty that employs the use of imaging to both diagnose and treat diseases within the human body. A radiologist is a specialist who has taken additional training in the interpretation of medical images. Although radiology began with the use of X-Rays and large flat sheets of photographic film, 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 use neither X-Rays nor radiation of any kind – such as a MRI’s and Ultrasound imaging.
