About Department Of Radiology & Imaging Technology
Radiology is the medical discipline that uses medical imaging to diagnose diseases and guide their treatment, within the bodies of humans and other animals.
It began with radiography (which is why its name has a root referring to radiation), but today it includes all imaging modalities, including those that use no electromagnetic radiation (such as ultrasonography and magnetic resonance imaging), as well as others that do, such as computed tomography (CT), fluoroscopy, and nuclear medicine including positron emission tomography (PET). Interventional radiology is the performance of usually minimally invasive medical procedures with the guidance of imaging technologies such as those mentioned above.
Highlights of “Radiology and Imaging Technology”
“Radiology” is a branch of medicine that uses radiation and imaging technology to diagnose and treat disease. The process involves multiples tests, which require projecting and picturing various parts of the body. Radiology is useful in several operations such as CT scan, MRI, X-ray, ultrasound, etc required during diagnosis.
Radiology is the principle management process of all the disease. It also contains a variety of tools and techniques for detection, analyzing, and curing. Moreover, it is the way through which the doctor finds out detailed information about disease-related structural changes. We all know early diagnosis can help save much life, and without it, there can be no proper diagnosis, thus no treatment.
It allows the radiologic technologist to produce images of various internal parts of the body, to aid in the detection of injury or disease by using radiations. Radiology is central to the clinical practice of medicine across a wide range of disciplines. Radiology and imaging technologist who operates the radiology machine for required performance resulting in the quality medical imaging test result.
As the Radiology and Imaging Technologist is one of the healthcare provider They act as key play-role in producing good quality image with minimal radiation to the patient and also they provides good quality image for the Radiologists doctor to interpretate the radiological image to give exact diagnostic information of the patient for further treatment.
Treating disease using radiation oncology or carrying out the image-guided therapeutic intervention. Also, performing a task that results in minimal invasion.
Recommends people if they require any more treatment or examination, if necessary, with the consultation of your doctor. Referring to other test results with imaging results and co-relating them for proper analysis.
Importance of radiology in treatment wise
Radiology first came to light because of X-ray; after this, it took medical science to another level. It helped us see our body’s internal parts, which helped diagnose bone and disease that would not have been possible.
X-rays use radiation to look for dysfunctional objects or bones inside the body that may cause the problem. This process allows the doctor to analyze any bone structure mistake, which can help treat you better.
Other picturing or imaging
Besides X-ray, radiology helps in imaging procedures in other imaging processes as well. Through this technology, doctors and surgeons can access real-time pictures of the inside body.
Radiology and Imaging Technologist/Radiographers importance;
For providing better treatment, doctors require correct diagnosis results. Thus they largely depend on radiographers. Radiographers’ roles are not only limited to carry out to produce diagnostic Imaging. But they also provide mental and physical support to patients. Moreover, this support helps the patient prepare for their test.
One of the radiographer’s essential roles is, it clears patients’ doubts and answers their treatment-related questions. Furthermore, they are experienced in dealing with sensitive patients to bring them in a better position.

By Successful Completion of the Radiology Bachelors program students will be Skilled enough to:
There has never been a more exciting time to enter the field of Radiology and imaging. Over the past few decades, new specialties have emerged. Among them are:
Bone densitometry — Known also as dual energy x-ray absorptiometry (DEXA), bone densitometry is a type of scan that measures bone density. As we get older, bone density plummets. A bone scan is used to determine if someone is at risk from osteoporosis, which can increase the rate of bone fractures.
Computed tomography — Here, a computer controls the motion of the x- ray source and detector, processes the data, and generates an image.
Mammography — A technique used to screen for tumors of the breast. This is a particularly exciting area of radiographic technology. Since the introduction of artificial intelligence software to analyze mammograms, they can be read with 99 percent accuracy, minimizing the need for costly and unpleasant biopsies.
Magnetic resonance imaging — MRI scanners use strong magnetic fields to generate extremely detailed pictures of the organs in the body to detect disease. Although the technique is noninvasive and doesn't require the use of harmful radiation, the inside of the scanner itself can be very claustrophobic and fiercely noisy.
The radiographer therefore needs to be able to calm the patient while instructing them to remain absolutely motionless, a feat requiring extraordinary skill in diplomacy, empathy, and psychology.
Cardiovascular interventional radiography — Formerly a sub-specialty of radiology, cardiovascular interventional radiography is now a discipline in its own right, using minimally invasive imaging to guide clinicians in procedures that aim to diagnose and treat disease in every organ system of the body.
Nuclear medicine — The use of radioisotopes to diagnose and treat disease. Here, the radiation emanates from inside of the body out.
General radiography — The most basic form of radiography, general radiography uses x-rays to produce a fixed image of part of the body. It is used routinely to diagnose fractures.
Radiation oncology — Medical densitometry and radiation therapy
Virtual colonoscopy screening — a noninvasive method of screening for colon cancer and has been shown to prevent cancer in as many as 94 percent of cases.
