Dr. Matthew R Dicker has the following 3 specialties
- Vascular & Interventional Radiology
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.
- 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.

Went to this practitioner for spider vein treatment. A big sign in the waiting room lists this as one of his "specialties" and he was confident of a good outcome since the veins were minor. After the fact......discovered he used a solution that is not FDA approved for the treatment of spider veins, one area ulcerated and the area requires plastic surgery, the other areas all look worse. No improvement, the procedure was elective so out of pocket expense is lost and what was to be a minor procedure for a little body image boost has me hiding in long pants.
