Advances in medicine constantly change to improve the way that doctors handle different situations. In the case of radiology, medical professionals focus on imaging and medical treatment through radiation and updated medical techniques.
Radiology refers to the use of different tools, like x-rays and ultrasounds, to look at the internal workings of the human body. A radiologist is a specialized medical professional with training in the use of appropriate devices and machinery for imaging and health maintenance. A professional in radiology also has the experience and training to evaluate and read the information provided in an ultrasound, x-ray or during other routine checks for health concerns.
A radiologist not only learns about the machinery and tools, but also the possible risks associated with a treatment process. By understanding the possible risks, a professional has the tools to avoid and limit the downsides and ensure that patients remain safe while a medical professional evaluates and diagnoses a condition.
"Behind The Scenes" with James Earl Jones will explain the medical treatments that require a radiologist and the possible downsides associated with treatments. You will learn about the imaging tools a radiologist uses to diagnose health concerns and new advances in radiology that will change medical treatments in the future.
