What is a Radiologist?
A radiologist is a physician that uses various imaging technologies, such as Ultrasound, CT scans, MRI, nuclear medicine, or digital X-Ray, to diagnose and/or treat various diseases and disorders. Radiology is subdivided into many fields in which radiologists may sub-specialize in order to treat particular conditions,of the body, or types of patients. Radiologists have successfully completed at least 13 years of post-high school education, including four years of undergraduate study, four years of medical school (and physician licensure), and five years of post-graduate training – which includes a four year residency program. Then, some radiologists enter into sub-specialty training programs, called fellowships, which are usually one or two years long. The fellowship training programs are in areas such as abdominal imaging, thoracic imaging, CT/Ultrasound, MRI, musculoskeletal imaging, interventional radiology, neuroradiology, interventional neuroradiology, pediatric radiology, mammography and women's imaging (many of the radiologists at Florida Hospital Memorial Medical Center Imaging are sub-specialists).
Radiologists are certified by the American Board of Radiologists (ABR) in areas such as Radiation Oncology and Diagnostic Radiology and its' sub-specialties, which include Neuroradiology, Nuclear Radiology, Pediatric Radiology, and Vascular and Interventional Radiology (many of the radiologists at Florida Hospital Memorial Medical Center Imaging are sub-specialists and are board-certified).
