In many ways: radiology allows your doctor to see inside your body without surgery. Thus results in diagnoses being made earlier allowing better results from treatment. Also lesions which were previously occult until far advanced are now found sooner. Finally imaging allows for evaluation of tissue functioning and targeted therapies to particular areas of the body. Radiology has revolutionized medical care
Created for people with ongoing healthcare needs but benefits everyone.
