Diagnostic Radiologist


Diagnostic radiologists diagnose diseases of the human body using: (1) x-rays; (2) ultrasound, magnetic resonance imaging (MRI); (3) computed tomography (CT); and  (4) nuclear medicine, the injection and tracking of radioactive solution in the body.

Diagnostic radiologists usually work indoors in clinics, alongside patients and medical professionals. They are good at analysing pictures for abnormalities and communication information to patients, doctors and specialists. Patients and doctors rely on accurate diagnoses to develop their medical treatment plans, so diagnostic radiologists need to give accurate, timely information.
