What does a radiologist do?

RADIOLOGISTS are specially trained to use medical imaging technology such as MRI, CT scans and ultrasound to assist other doctors in figuring out issues related to their patients' medical conditions.

Radiological exams are absolute necessities in the medical evaluation of any patient and the radiologist is the one that interprets these.

Radiologists also play a major role in the diagnosis and follow-up of various cancers.

They also use X-rays or other imaging to examine damage to joints or bones.
