Radiology

 

Radiology describes the area of medicine that utilizes X-rays, radioactive tracers, and ultrasonic waves in order to detect, diagnose, and guide treatment of numerous diseases and injuries. The discovery of the X-ray initiated the field of radiological imaging and continuing developments in technology, computers, and science are further advancing the capability to view inner body structures, tissues, and organs. Currently, the dynamic images that radiology provides are essential to both physicians and patients, thanks to their realistic depiction of the anatomy, functions, and abnormalities within the body.
