  • Radiology
    Radiology is the process of using ionizing and nonionizing radiation to produce images for the diagnosis and treatment of disease. Examples of radiology techniques are X-ray, ultrasound and MRI. Radiologic technologists typically operate the image capturing equipment and radiologists interpret the results and use them to make diagnosis.
