Medical radiology refers to all diagnostic and therapeutic techniques, using X-rays and other radiation. It covers conventional radiology – or standard radiography -, by X-rays passing through the body to print a photosensitive film, medical imaging by ultrasound (ultrasound), by magnetic resonance (scanner and MRI) … and interventional radiology, all procedures invasive diagnostics and therapy performed by the radiologist.
Radiology techniques are used to detect, specify and sometimes treat a disease (fracture, malformation, foreign body, tumor, etc.). The main examinations are:
Standard radiography for the skeleton, joints and certain organs (lungs, abdomen, breasts, etc.)
Ultrasound (tissues, vessels, ligaments, etc.);
Doppler (blood flow);
The scanner which scans an area of the body and translates it into thin sections;
MRI allowing, after administration or not of a contrast product, visualization in 2 or 3 dimensions.
