Radiologists in Hyderabad

Radiology deals with imaging to diagnose and treat disorders in the human body. Imaging could refer to X-ray radiography, ultrasound, computed tomography (CT), nuclear medicine like positron emission tomography (PET), and magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) to diagnose and treat diseases.

While the most common example is that of X-Ray, there are many more processes, both complicated and straightforward, that fall under the purview of Radiology. Wilhelm Conrad Röntgen discovered X-Rays in 1895 and won the Nobel Prize in Physics for it.

Since then, X-Rays have become an integral part of medical treatment. X-Rays make it easy for us to examine internal body parts. Since the discovery of X-Ray, Radiology has diversified to many other techniques like Fluoroscopy, Computed Tomography, Ultrasound, Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) and Nuclear Medicine.

Radiologists are specialists who study, observe and diagnose and treat patients using imaging. There are three types of radiologists – diagnostic, interventional and therapeutic, and they are a part of the entire process of treatment. Often the role of the radiologist is at the beginning of the treatment, but a radiologist is also often consulted at regular intervals of the treatment to gauge the progress of therapy. Often, a radiologist works with a team of other doctors and specialists, and the treatment is arrived upon after consulting a team of experts.
