A radiologist is a physician who uses imaging technologies such as X-rays, ultrasound, and electromagnetic radiation to help medical and dental physicians “see” medical conditions that are otherwise difficult to diagnose in patients. Some radiologists also use radiologic technologies to treat diseases such as cancer. Radiologists must earn a medical degree (M.D.) and go through several years of training in radiology. After their residency, many radiologists then focus on specialties within the field, such as pediatric radiology or abdominal radiology.
