Specialties

Dr. Michael P Norton has the following 2 specialties

  • 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.

  • 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.

One Star

This doctor makes his income from diagnosing and treating breast cancer. He has significant complaints about Federal recommendations for mammogram screening.In part of his 'argument' he misquotes the recommendation, then substitutes "inefficient (least expensive)" for "effective". One might argue that this is unprofessional, unethical and designed to frighten women to seek unnecessary diagnosis and treatment.This might be a great place to go for treatment, but diagnosis and any treatment plan should be outside of any organization where there is the appearance that income and profits have priority over patients.
