What Is Diagnostic Radiology?

Diagnostic radiology is the field of medicine that uses imaging exams and procedures to diagnose a patient. In any form of medical care, diagnostic radiology plays an integral part in the diagnosis of disease or injury. Diagnostic Radiology encompasses a variety of diagnostic imaging techniques, including flouroscopy and x-ray. Diagnostic imaging allows our Radiologic Physicians to look inside your body for clues about a medical condition. A variety of machines and techniques can create pictures of the structures and activities inside your body.
