Radiologist Treatments

Radiologists are medical doctors that specialize in diagnosing and treating injuries and diseases using medical imaging (radiology) procedures (exams/tests) such as X-rays, computed tomography (CT), magnetic resonance imaging (MRI), nuclear medicine, positron emission tomography (PET) and ultrasound.

Reasons To See a Radiologist

Radiology is a critical medical specialty that involves a series of tests used to diagnose and treat diseases using radiant energy. It encompasses two primary areas, namely diagnostic radiology and interventional radiology. The various imaging exams available include X-ray, MRI, ultrasound, CT scan and PET scan.

In this field, a radiologist plays a critical role in interpreting the results of imaging tests to support a diagnosis and determine the most appropriate course of treatment. Radiologists are medical doctors with specialized training in medical imaging interpretation. In addition to radiologists, radiologic technologists contribute to the process by operating and managing imaging machines.

Post-imaging tests, diagnostic radiologists present a report of their findings to the referring clinical doctors who use the information to diagnose and treat a patient. Radiology is an essential aspect of modern healthcare since it enables physicians to identify and treat various medical conditions.

What Is Diagnostic Radiology?

Diagnostic radiology uses medical imaging like X-rays, CT scans, MRIs, ultrasounds, and PET scans to check what’s happening inside a person’s body. It’s a type of medical specialty that helps identify sickness or injury. The main purpose is to find out what’s wrong with the patient by using different medical imaging technologies.

What is interventional radiology?

Interventional radiologists are highly qualified medical professionals who specialize in the diagnosis and treatment of various medical conditions. They have extensive expertise in inserting small tools, such as catheters and wires, into the body to treat a broad range of illnesses. As a result, they use X-ray and other imaging techniques to guide their actions.

Interventional radiology is a viable alternative to surgery for many conditions, reducing the possibility of hospitalization and minimizing post-operative risks.

This medical discipline has rapidly evolved because of the high demand for less invasive procedures. With their skill set, interventional radiologists strive to provide patients with the best possible care and treatment options.

What procedures do interventional radiologists perform?

Interventional radiologists do a variety of procedures, including:

Angiography. This is an X-ray of the arteries and veins to find blockage or narrowing of the vessels, as well as other problems.

Angioplasty. The doctor puts a small balloon-tipped catheter into a blood vessel. Then he or she inflates the balloon to open up an area of blockage inside the vessel.

Embolization. The doctor puts a substance through a catheter into a blood vessel to stop blood flow through that vessel. This can be done to control bleeding.

Gastrostomy tubes. The doctor puts a feeding tube into the stomach if you can’t take food by mouth.

Intravascular ultrasound. The doctor uses ultrasound to see inside a blood vessel to find problems.

Stent placement. The doctor places a tiny mesh coil (stent) inside a blood vessel at the site of a blockage. He or she expands the stent to open up the blockage.

Foreign body removal. The doctor puts a catheter into a blood vessel to remove a foreign body in the vessel.

Needle biopsy. The doctor puts a small needle into almost any part of the body, guided by imaging techniques, to take a tissue biopsy. This type of biopsy can give a diagnosis without surgery. An example of this procedure is called the needle breast biopsy.

IVC filters. The doctor puts a small filter into the inferior vena cava (IVC). This is a large vein in your abdomen. The filter catches blood clots that may go into your lungs

Injection of clot-dissolving medicines. The doctor injects clot-dissolving medicines such as tissue plasminogen activator. This medicine dissolves blood clots and increases blood flow to your arms, legs, or organs in your body.

Catheters insertions. The doctor puts a catheter into a large vein to give chemotherapy medicines, nutrition, or hemodialysis. He or she may also put in a catheter before a bone-marrow transplant.

Cancer treatment. The doctor gives the cancer medicine directly to the tumor site.
