Types of Radiology

Computed Tomography
Computed Tomography

Computed Tomography (CT) Although also based on the variable absorption of x rays by different tissues, computed tomography (CT) imaging, also known as "CAT scanning" (Computerized Axial Tomography), provides a different form of imaging known as cross-sectional imaging.

"Computed tomography (CT) is a medical imaging method employing tomography. Digital geometry processing is used to generate a three-dimensional image of the inside of an object from a large series of two-dimensional X-ray images taken around a single axis of rotation.

Flow-Sensitive MRI (FS MRI)
Flow-Sensitive MRI (FS MRI)

Flow sensitive sequences One of the great advantages of MRI is its ability to image physiological flow (e.g. blood flow) often without the need for intravenous contrast. This allows for the imaging of arteries, veins and CSF flow.

Fluoroscopy, Including Upper GI and Barium Enema
Fluoroscopy, Including Upper GI and Barium Enema

Fluoroscopy is a type of x-ray procedure that captures moving images, allowing the radiologist to observe the functioning as well as the anatomy of internal organs. Common exams that use fluoroscopy include upper gastrointestinal exams (UGI), barium swallow, and barium enemas (BE).

Magnetic Resonance Imaging

Here you will find links to doctor-reviewed articles about magnetic resonance imaging (MRI).

Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI)
Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI)

Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) is an imaging procedure utilizing strong magnetic fields and radio waves to produce cross-sectional images of organs and internal structures in the body. Each cross-section represents a “slice” of the part of the body being imaged.

Mammography
Mammography

Mammography is a dedicated radiographic technique for imaging the breast. Types of mammography In general terms, there are two types of mammography: screening and diagnostic.

MRI (Magnetic Resonance Imaging)
MRI (Magnetic Resonance Imaging)

Radiology and Imaging Specialists has MRI units available for all your imaging needs. Our Wide Bore MRI is located at our Central, Pablo and Plant City offices. MRI uses radio frequency waves and a strong magnetic field rather than radiation to provide detailed images of the body.

Nuclear Medicine Imaging, Including Positron-Emission Tomography (PET)
Nuclear Medicine Imaging, Including Positron-Emission Tomography (PET)

Positron emission tomography, also called PET imaging or a PET scan, is a type of nuclear medicine imaging. Nuclear medicine is a branch of medical imaging that uses small amounts of radioactive material to diagnose and determine the severity of or treat a variety of diseases, including many types of cancers, heart disease, gastrointestinal, endocrine, neurological disorders and other abnormalities within the body.

Radiologist (MD)
Radiologist (MD)

Radiologists are medical doctors that specialize in diagnosing and treating injuries and diseases using medical imaging (radiology) procedures (exams/tests) such as X-rays, computed tomography (CT), magnetic resonance imaging (MRI), nuclear medicine, positron emission tomography (PET) and ultrasound.

Radiology Technicians
Radiology Technicians

Radiologic technologists are the medical personnel who perform diagnostic imaging examinations and administer radiation therapy treatments. They are educated in anatomy, patient positioning, examination techniques, equipment protocols, radiation safety, radiation protection and basic patient care.

Ultrasound
Ultrasound

Ultrasound imaging uses sound waves to produce pictures of the inside of the body. It is used to help diagnose the causes of pain, swelling and infection in the body’s internal organs and to examine a baby in pregnant women and the brain and hips in infants.

Ultrasound Technician / Diagnostic Medical Sonographer
Ultrasound Technician / Diagnostic Medical Sonographer

Are there many types of sonography specialties or can an AAS in medical diagnostic sonography cover the best options?if I go for rad tech can it be better to do first and then later sonography? If you are not sure, I would definitely recommend going into radiology technologist.

X-Rays
X-Rays

X-ray or radiography uses a very small dose of ionizing radiation to produce pictures of the body's internal structures. X-rays are the oldest and most frequently used form of medical imaging. They are often used to help diagnosed fractured bones, look for injury or infection and to locate foreign objects in soft tissue.
