A radiologist is a physician who utilizes imaging methodologies to diagnose and manage patients and provide therapeutic options.

Physicians practicing in the field of radiology specialize in diagnostic radiology, or radiation oncology.

Radiologists can receive training in the following subspecialties:

  • neuroradiology
