Serving as an expert advisor to your doctor (the doctor who recommended your case to the radiology clinic or department to be tested) by assisting the physician in selecting the appropriate examination, understanding the medical images that resulted, and using the results of tests to guide your treatment.
The treatment of disease with radiation (radiation oncology) or minimally invasive treatment guided by images (interventional radiology).
The correlation of medical imaging findings with other tests and exams.
We recommend further exams or treatments as needed and coordinate with the physician who refers you.
The job of directing Radiologic Technologists (personnel who control the equipment) to ensure proper execution of quality tests.
Your Radiologist has the proper Education, Experience and the Experience
If your doctors who refer you to them tell they've reviewed your research typically, what they mean is that they've read the radiology report or went over the exam with your Radiologist.
Radiologists are at the forefront of imaging technology. They pioneer using CT, MRI, PET, and the fusion imaging process and minimally-invasive procedures like endovascular treatment of tumors and aneurysms, percutaneous biopsies, and targeted radiation treatment.
