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.

Being told you have a "mass" in your lung is a disconcerting experience. When I met Dr Shepard he allowed my wife and son to listen to he explanation. He answered all our questions. When the procedure was performed he told me at every step what was going on. Anesthesia eliminated all the pain. The initial numbing medicine hurt the most and even that decimated very quickly. Total time was about 10 minutes. I spent two hours in a recovery bed. He came by check me over and gave my wife and I a list of things to look for. He gave me his card with his private number and told me to call anytime. Three days later I met with my regular doc who told me the mass was not cancer. He scheduled a six month follow up to make sure nothing changes. Dr Shepards PA called a week later to see how I was doing and to be sure we had gotten the results. I wish Dr Shepard could reach my other doctors manners.
