Diagnostic Radiology

Diagnostic Radiology uses high definition modalities to allow visualization of body tissues. While Therapeutic radiology actually utilizes radiation in the treatment of conditions such as cancer, the more common form is Diagnostic Radiology. This technique is carried out using radiation transmitting devices such as X-Rays, but also includes non radiation techniques as well. Radiology includes computed tomography (CT), magnetic resonance imaging (MRI), PET scans, ultrasound, and nuclear imaging. Each modality has a different purpose, but they are all administered by XRANM’s experienced specialists for the best results.

There is an important distinction between interventional and diagnostic radiology – diagnostic radiology is non-invasive and focuses on using imaging technology like x-rays, ultrasounds and various scans to diagnose patients. Interventional radiology is exists to treat diseases by using images to guide small instruments like tubes, catheters and needles towards affected areas of the body. Diagnostic and interventional radiologists work together to help diagnose and then treat a variety of conditions.
