Looking for Radiology treatment in Germany?

Radiology, also called diagnostic imaging, is a series of different tests that take pictures or images of various parts of the body.
Radiology may be divided into two different areas - Diagnostic Radiology and Interventional Radiology.

Diagnostic Radiology

Diagnostic radiology helps healthcare providers see structures inside your body. Doctors that specialize in the interpretation of these images are called diagnostic radiologists.

Interventional Radiology

Interventional radiologists are doctors that use imaging such as CT, ultrasound, MRI, and fluoroscopy to help guide procedures. The imaging is helpful to the doctor when inserting catheters, wires, and other small instruments and tools into your body.
