    What is Radiology?
    Radiological procedures are used for looking at the internal structures of the body, whether bone or soft tissue. Usually these examinations are carried out to:
    • diagnose disease states, such as cancer or heart disease
    • show the extent of injury to body structures
    • to aid in interventional procedures, such as angiography.
    The radiologist may use different methods such as, X-ray, Computed Tomography (CT), Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) and Ultrasound as well as some other specialised types of radiological imaging.
    The Team
    • Medical Radiation Technologists (MRTs) or Radiographers perform your X-ray, barium and mammography examinations.
    • Sonographers are MRTs who perform your ultrasound examinations.
    • Radiologists  are specialist doctors who read and understand your films. They will also be involved if you have an intravenous urogram (IVU), barium study, mammogram and a number of other ultrasound procedures.  They interpret the results of the images and send them to your doctor.
