Case Reports on Radiology
Radiology is a branch of medicine that deals with radiant energy in the diagnosis and treatment of diseases. This field can be divided into two broad areas-diagnostic radiology and interventional radiology. A variety of imaging techniques such as X-ray radiography, ultrasound, computed tomography (CT), nuclear medicine including positron emission tomography (PET), and magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) are used to diagnose and treat the diseases. Interventional radiology is the performance of (usually minimally invasive) medical procedures with guidance of imaging technologies. Imaging studies (X-rays, Computed Tomography, Magnetic Resonance Imaging, Positron emission Tomography etc) are used to treat and diagnose a disease or an injury in the body.
Neuroradiology, thoracic radiology, cardiac imaging, OB/GYN imaging, genitourinary radiology, musculoskeletal imaging, interventional radiology and paediatric radiology are some of the important subspecialties of Radiology.
Case reports on Radiology are required to be analysed to very precisely identify a disease or a condition. Radiation Oncologists use radiation therapy to treat cancer and other diseases.
