Diagnostic Radiology
Diagnostic radiology uses medical imaging technology to see into the body without surgery, pinpointing and identifying disorders. Modalities include radiography (“x-rays”), fluoroscopy (“fluoro”), ultrasound, magnetic resonance imaging (MRI), computed tomography (CT), and nuclear medicine. Interventional Radiology Interventional radiology is a specialized service using image guidance to perform minimally invasive procedures, both for diagnostic and therapeutic purposes. Procedures include vascular access, enteric access, biopsies, drainages, catheter angiography, angioplasty, nephrostograms with nephrostomy drainage, and transhepatic cholangiograms with biliary drainage.
