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.

Think Twice... Plenty of other choices. The office staff, customer service skills, and patient communication are horrendous. Hopefully someone can leverage this review to not make the same mistake I did.
This was a very nerve wracking experience for me to have to have a cat scan. I have terrible anxiety and didn't succeed in hiding it. The radiologist who was running my test was not making it any better. He was making me nervous and causing me to think that my situation was going to wind up being worst case scenario. After jabbing my arm and legitimately digging for a vein for the IV, he was unsuccessful. Finally he brought in Dr. Hammel. He was very comforting. He spoke to me to try to calm me down and carefully put the IV in for me. It calmed me down because it finally felt like someone was treating me like a human being. He saw how nervous I was and had me stay in the office while he reviewed this test. I am so grateful that he was present during my exam. This is truly a fantastic doctor and he should be recognized. He has great bed side manner, very educated and thorough. So if he sees this, thank you doctor and I hope other people consider him for their radiological needs.
