What is a Radiologist?
Radiologists specialize in diagnosing and treating disease and injury by using diagnostic medical imaging techniques such as x-rays, ultrasound, computed tomography (CT), magnetic resonance imaging (MRI), positron emission tomography (PET), and CT/PET fusion imaging.
All Radiology Group physicians are board-certified by the American Board of Radiology. Each is a highly trained physician who has completed at least six years of radiology training after earning a four year medical degree. Post-graduate training includes:
- One year of internship
- Four years of residency training in diagnostic radiology, and
- One or more years of sub-specialty training in specific disciplines, such as chest, cardiac, neuroradiology, pediatric, musculoskeletal, breast imaging and more.
