Radiologists regularly use several different types of medical equipment. In order to diagnose their patients, they use X-ray imaging, ultrasounds, computed tomography (CT), and other devices. These imaging machines use different methods to create an image of the inside of the human body. Radiologists can then use those images to diagnose, and then to treat patients.
Radiologists have to go through a lot of training before they are able to make diagnoses. These medical professionals have a medical degree and are required to complete a residency in radiology. Some radiologists choose to specialize in neuroradiology or nuclear medicine. These individuals have to complete additional training through a fellowship program.
Nuclear medicine is a subspecialty of radiology. Doctors who are trained in this field are able to perform procedures that use positron emission tomography (PET) and magnetic resonance imaging (MRI). They have additional diagnostic skills and are able to help a wider group of patients. Neuroradiology is another subspecialty that focuses on imaging the brain, head, neck and spine for diagnostic and treatment purposes. Doctor Wessam Bou-Assaly is an experienced radiologist who has years of academic experience as well as practical medical experience. He enjoys working and studying in radiology.
