Who Are Radiologists?
Radiologists play some of the most vital yet commonly overlooked roles in the medical industry. But what exactly do they do?
According to the American College of Radiology, 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.”
In layperson’s terms, a radiologist is a doctor who uses medical imaging to diagnose and treat patients.
