Radiologists are experts in reading and interpreting images produced by diagnostic imaging techniques.

When Should You Consult a Radiologist?

A radiologist can be consulted when your doctor requests further testing or examination of an injury or medical condition. Radiological diagnostic imaging techniques are used to detect and diagnose numerous conditions including bone fractures, tumours and pneumonia.

- Cancer: Detecting and monitoring cancer using various imaging techniques such as CT scans, MRIs and X-rays
- Bone fractures: Diagnosing bone fractures using X-rays, CT scans or MRIs
- Cardiovascular diseases: Diagnosing heart disease using cardiac MRI or CT scans
- Digestive disorders: Diagnosing digestive disorders such as Crohn's disease using CT enterography

Diagnostic imaging such as:

  • Chest radiograph: This is an X-ray of the chest used to identify lung and heart conditions.
  • MRI scan: This non-invasive scan uses magnetic fields and radio waves to produce detailed images of internal organs and tissues.
  • CT scan: This scan uses X-rays and computer technology to produce cross-sectional images of the body.
  • Ultrasound: This scan uses sound waves to produce images of the body's internal structures, including organs and blood vessels.
  • Mammography: This X-ray technique is used to screen for breast cancer.
  • Positron Emission Tomography (PET) Scan: PET scans use a small amount of radioactive material to show how tissues and organs are functioning.

Interventional procedures such as:

  • Biopsies (tissue samples)
  • Drainage of fluid collections
  • Angiography (visualisation of blood vessels)
  • Radiation therapy such as:
  • External beam radiation therapy
  • Brachytherapy (internal radiation therapy)

How Can I Consult a Radiologist?

Consulting a radiologist requires a referral from your doctor. The referral will provide the radiologist with your medical history and any previous diagnostic tests you have had. During your appointment, the radiologist will conduct the necessary imaging tests to diagnose your condition. They will then interpret the images produced and provide a diagnosis.
