- Diagnostic Radiology
Radiologists help doctors get a closer look at what’s happening inside your body. If your primary care doctor wants to investigate your symptoms further, they may refer you to a radiologist to get an ultrasound or x-ray. Some radiologists specialize in mammography and breast imaging, which is who you see when you need a mammogram. A Radiologist can also determine if bones are broken or fractured after any kind of accident.
Radiologists are trained to perform MRIs and CT scans, both of which are used to determine the presence of diseases or disorders and help your doctor properly diagnose you. They can detect anything from tumors, bleeding and infections to bone and muscle disorders.
A radiologist is a physician who specializes in the use of medical imaging to diagnose and treat illnesses or injuries in patients.
The different types of medical imaging are X-ray, computed tomography (CT) scans, magnetic resonance imaging (MRI), ultrasound, and nuclear medicine.
Radiologists are experts in these different types of tests and can advise a primary care doctor on which test is most appropriate in a specific case. These doctors also assist primary care doctors in analyzing the images produced by these tests in order to determine next steps necessary for treatment.

Dr. Benson is one of the leaders in the U.S. in fetal diagnostic imaging. She is the one the top doctors at the Brigham turn to when they have a complicated case. The other review is correct insofar as she is very direct and not particularly warm in her delivery of worrisome news. But at the end of the day, I am willing to sacrifice the bedside manner for the accuracy of the diagnosis, and in Dr. Benson's case, she is the best in her field. She delivered bad news to me just yesterday but I feel lucky to have been able to have her do my imaging.
