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.
