Radiology is of utmost help to the doctors in diagnosing the disease accurately. The objectives are described below –
It all started with X-rays and they came into the picture with radiology that has completely transformed the medical field forever. The clear images that the doctor gets of the patient’s body, be it a fractured body part or any other disease for that matter.
X-rays utilize the radiations that scan through the body and look at the foreign objects and bones. This further enables the doctors to diagnose the patient accurately and recommend the best treatment.
2. Other Imaging
Besides X-rays, radiology has invaded other imaging technologies as well, like CT Scan, MRI, Fluoroscopy, and Angiography. This wide range of technologies enables the physicians and surgeons to have real-time pictures of the digestive system, blood vessels, giving both 2D and 3D images of the tissues present within the body and also offering the cross-sectional images of the body.
