What is a Radiologist?
Radiologists are medical doctors (MDs) or doctors of osteopathic medicine (DOs) who specialize in diagnosing and treating diseases and injuries using medical imaging techniques, such as x-rays, computed tomography (CT), magnetic resonance imaging (MRI), nuclear medicine, positron emission tomography (PET) and ultrasound.
After each imaging exam, the radiologist reads and interprets the medical images and provides recommendations for additional care or treatments as needed. Results read by the radiologist are sent to the referring physicians within 24 hours. Radiologists play an important role in our healthcare system.
