Radiologists specialize in diagnosing and treating injuries and diseases using medical imaging procedures such as X-rays, computed tomography (CT), magnetic resonance imagining (MRI), nuclear medicine, positron emission tomography (PET) and ultrasound.
Also known as radiotherapy or radiation therapy, this medical specialty is an essential part of a multidisciplinary approach to cancer treatment. It uses high energy x rays most commonly delivered through a linear accelerator. These therapeutic x rays are painless and invisible and are used to treat a number of different cancers.
