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.

I have never been to the Columbia office, but Dr. Buckner took care of me when I was seen emergently at Shady Grove Hospital. I had massive post-partum bleeding a week after delivering my first child, and the OB was recommending a hysterectomy to stop the bleeding. Dr. Buckner was the in-house interventional radiologist who performed a angiogram and was able to identify the source of bleeding and stop it, thus saving me from having a hysterectomy (and allowing me to have additional children later on). I and my entire family are forever grateful to him.
