What does a Radiologist Do?

A radiologist is a medical doctor who specializes in the interpretation and diagnosis of medical images obtained from various imaging modalities such as X-rays, MRI, CT scans, and ultrasound. They play an essential role in diagnosing and treating various medical conditions, including cancer, fractures, infections, and cardiovascular diseases.

Radiologists work with the radiology team to interpret and diagnose medical images produced by different imaging technologies. They study these images in detail to identify potential abnormalities, such as tumors, fractures, infections, or other diseases.

Radiologists work closely with other members of the healthcare team, including primary care physicians, surgeons, and oncologists, to develop a comprehensive and accurate diagnosis and treatment plan for patients. They use their expertise to guide and oversee imaging procedures to ensure that they are enhancing and prioritizing patient care.

In addition, radiologists may also perform minimally invasive procedures such as biopsies and drainages using image-guided techniques. They work with interventional radiology to provide diagnosis and treatment for various conditions in a minimally invasive way.

Radiologists must complete extensive training, which includes medical school, residency, and fellowship specific to radiology. They are certified by the American Board of Radiology and are required to stay up to date with the latest developments in radiology.
