Just imagine what would have happened to the patients if doctors would have suggested to cut them open every time to check every minor and major internal injuries? Isn’t it scary? There is a branch of medicine which enables the doctors to see inside the patient’s body and distinguish and treat diseases without cutting them open. The branch is called Radiology or medical imaging. This discipline of study brings scientists from biology, physics and chemistry together. 

Radiology is divided into two areas namely diagnostic radiology and interventional radiology. Various imaging techniques used by the Radiologists include-
