RADIOLOGY is the science of using medical imaging to help diagnose and, in some cases, treat diseases in the human body. Radiology can be used as a diagnostic or an interventional procedure. Diagnostic Radiology is used to determine the presence of a medical condition while interventional radiology is a procedure used to correct or treat a particular condition.
Many different imaging techniques are a part of radiology including but not limited to
