Diagnostic radiology subspecialties and procedures
Carolina Radiology is composed of a team of physicians with an extensive depth and breadth of diagnostic radiology expertise. Diagnostic radiologists are physicians who have specialized training and experience in the interpretation of medical images to screen for, diagnose, and/or plan the treatment of diseases, conditions, and injuries.
Images of organs and tissues inside the body that diagnostic radiologists interpret are obtained through a number of technologies that use X-rays, including radiographs, fluoroscopy, and CT scans (computed tomography), as well as sound waves (ultrasound), radioactive substances (nuclear medicine), or radio waves (magnetic resonance imaging). Many diagnostic radiologists are also trained in a subspecialty that focuses on diagnostic imaging of a specific area of the body and/or a particular imaging modality.
